DiMauro 1940 LapSteel

    DiMauro 1940 LapSteel
    Here is a really(!) rare item to show: a 1940 built Antoine DiMauro "Model Lapsteel" guitar. This guitar was presented on a trade fair in 1947 at the exibition in Paris (see images). Really just a few of these must have left the workshop of DiMauro as i dont imagine that these would have been a great financial success or sales boom.
