Hello all, just tooting my own horn. Pictured is about 3 or four years evolution of my building Lapsteel guitars. For those who don’t know, a Lapsteel sounds much like the more common pedal steel, though it is a much simpler instrument to build. It is played with a bar and finger & thumb picks. They were very popular in the 30’s and 40’s playing Hawaiian music. As showen in the picture lapsteels take various shapes. The red double neck, 6 strings is my latest. Laps are also built with 8 and 10 strings.
