These are scans of a complete, original Oahu catalog from 1939. I'm hoping that having a full catalog up on the net will start to help fix peoples' assumptions about model names and numbers and also "who made what." I've captioned the pictures with maker information where possible.
Note that you can click on any of the images to see them larger. Click the link below to see the rest of the scans (I didn't want to put them all on one page since there's a lot of them...)!
|Kay-made model 229K (like this one)|

|Bassoguitar by Regal|
|that uke looks like a Harmony|
|the "marbled finish" type at the bottom is smooth-sounding|
