About the Wayne Amplyphone 1940s

This guitar was bought in the early 1950s by a Dutch woman who immigrated to Australia after WOII. Not so long ago the family of the woman decided to sell the guitar. On the side of the body there’s an old “redneck repair”, see photos.

There’s not a lot of information to find about this dobro style guitar. Most Wayne dobro’s we found only had a double bound body. This example has a double bound body and bound fretboard. So, this is probably a more “high-end” Wayne dobro.

The guitar also had a neck reset. Due to the lack of a truss rod we prefer to play slide on this guitar (the thing it’s made for doing). It’s also possible to play “normal” but this guitar doesn’t have a fretboard radius and there’s a slight bow in the neck (like most of them). So the action is a bit higher than normal.

Comes with the original case.
