 GRETSCH LAP STEEL GUITAR

The Supro brand began in 1935 as a line of guitars being made by National-Dobro,
the famous line of resonator guitars and electric slides.
The Supro brand followed its brother lines as the mother company Valco was born in 1936
as part of a move from California to Chicago.
Valco's name was an amalgam of Valco's primary owners first names
(Victor Smith, Al Frost, and Louis Dopyera),
and with the move saw a shift from acoustic instruments to amplifiers and electric instruments.

It was a company that was on the cutting edge,
and its innovations of this time include the first archtop with no soundhole for fighting feedback,
and first 2-pickup electric guitar, a 6-coil pickup,
and some of the most deluxe double and triple neck slide guitars ever produced.
They embraced a very ornate, Art Deco and early Moderne look to many of their guitars,
with beautiful ornate Egyptian influenced motifs for position markers
and spare two tone streamline body designs that recall the designs of concept cars of the day.
They were truly on the cusp of culture and taste through the 1940s.

By the late '50s and early '60s, Valco had grown to be an enormous manufacturer,
and had several brands it was making and marketing itself, such as National and Supro,
as well as a ton of others being distributed under other brands like Airline (Montgomery Wards),
Oahu, Silvertone (Sears), Custom Kraft, Gretsch and many others.
Many models were almost identical under different brands, often with a different logo,
pickup configuration, or sometimes a different finish.
Without a doubt they saved their high end models for the National and Supro brands.

1953 Gretsch Electromatic Steel Jet Mainliner 6147

Serial # X40803. Built by Valco for Gretsch,
the Electromatic steel features a pearloid-covered symmetrical body,
back-painted plastic fingerboard, and a robust metal control plate.

The DeArmond pickup and control knobs scream 1950’s harmony,
and the plugged in tone has that fat, clean, and chimey classic DeArmond tone.
It’s a sweeter sound than the National / Supro steels that abound, and so much more unique.

Ce modèle Twin serait daté de 1963,
mais "Edward Ball" dit que les boutons avec la flèche sont plutot de 55 /56
donc peut etre pas les bon boutons ou un num de série bizarre...
La photo du catalogue et de 1955.

Apres quelques recherches :
" ED Ball " a donc trouvé que les Lapsteels ont eu un numéro de série identique au valco ....
Ce qui la place en 1956 Banco...
