Oahu Pearloid Fretboard
Back & Sides:
Circa late 1920s/early1930s. Stromberg style headstock. Honolulu Conservatories/Oahu branded. This is a gorgeous one with several "fancy" appointments including a pearled fingerboard, floral pattern decal, green pick guard/headstock veneer and beautiful faux rosewood birch back/sides. Expertly rebuilt by Dan Lambert to enhance its full potential while maintaining as much vintage originality as possible including repairs/enhancements to the original ladder bracing for improved tone and structural integrity, retaining original wood whenever possible. New rosewood fretboard under original pearloid fretboard veneer, new ebony bridge with pearled squares inlaid into eachendwing, new large frets, new spruce bridge plate with maple insert, new bone nut, new bone saddle. Original tuners. Small piece of replaced plastic back binding has been spliced in. New carbon rod has been inserted into the freshly reset mahogany neck to enhance structural integrity for another 100 years of playing.
