Does anyone here know anybody (preferably in Southern California) who owns a vintage 1940s OAHU guitar amp of this type?:



It does not have to be in working condition. I am looking for one as a loan for a museum exhibition on Tiki culture next year (as an example for the Pre-Tiiki Hawaiian music craze).

The ones on sale on e-bay and the internet are all refurbished and around 400.00 bucks and up, a little hefty for me as a non-musician....
