1940s Magnetone lap guitar and matching 'Dickerson' amplifier set made in USA, the guitar with original hard case. The Amplifier is 10w with an 8" Speaker, it requires a 110v power supply (American voltage) so a transformer will be required to use this in the UK.
The guitar itself appears to be from the 1950s, possibly 1952 according to our own research, and comprises a poplar body with a grey pearloid (affectionately known as "Mother of Toilet Seat") finish. Curiously the pickup is buried beneath the finish, as per the original design.
The "Dickerson" Amplifier is a 10-Watt Magnetone Model 8, and appears to date to around 1940. It features the same grey pearloid finish as the guitar with 4 tubes and an 8-inch speaker.
