Wayne Amplyphone 1940s
Out of stock
A Wayne Amplyphone Resonator “From Way Down Under”. Wayne Guitars was a father and son company from Australia. Father and son made guitars in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
This guitar was bought in the early 1950s by a Dutch woman who emigrated to Australia after World War II. Not so long ago, the woman's family decided to sell the guitar. There is an old "redneck repair" on the side of the body, see photos.
Not much information can be found on this dobro style guitar. Most of the Wayne Dobros we found only had a double body binding. This copy has a double bound body and bound fingerboard. So this is probably a more "high-end" Wayne dobro.
The guitar has had a neck reset. The instrument can be played well. But due to the lack of a truss rod, we prefer to play slide on it (the guitar is also made for this). Like many instruments of this era, the fingerboard has no radius and there is a slight bow in the neck.
Comes with the original case.
