  • Manufacturer: Oahu

  • Description: Beautiful old broad-shouldered jumbo with an arched back, double bound body as well as a bound sound hole in a stunning brown sunburst
  • Vintage Guitar? No
  • Modifications: Modified
  • Comments: Trapeze tailpiece and floating bridge were removed and a fixed pyramid bridge was installed. This bridge has saddle angle compensation, and the saddle itself is compensated too, so the intonation is excellent. There is plenty of saddle height at the bridge, and string ramps have been carved into the bridge for improved string break angle over the saddle. Frets are a little buzzy up past the 12th, but since there's no truss rod to adjust, the only way to fix this would be to plane the fretboard and replace the frets.
