Magnatone D-8 Double Steel Guitar in Portland for $400

These 8-string double steel guitars are mostly used for Hawaiian style music but they can also be good for Country. Either way this is a very nice deal on a great vintage instrument.

There are two versions of this instrument - this looks like the earlier one with a 22.5" scale. The later version has a 24 1/2" scale and twin pickups and two knobs per steel.

Tidbit: The great Hawaiian steel player Jules Ah See was known for using a Magnatone D-8.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
