A stunning 1930's Oahu 68K guitar featuring Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an abalone border. This model was originally released as a Hawaiian square-neck, but was modified for traditional-style playing. This particular example had a neck reset, received a new bridge, and is now in great vintage condition. There are a couple of unplugged holes from a mounted pickguard that has since been removed. Tonally, for being ladder-braced, this model has exceptional projection.  This guitar was previously owned by award-winning guitarist, Bryan Sutton.
