Here is my First Guitar, it’s a Lap steel and a gift.
It’s a solid body made from Sapelle, the fret board is Rosewood.
For the finish, it’s fill the grain, apply coats of A-R-M and finish the finish, than buff.
It’s sounds perfect!

That looks really cool! Did you have a kit? For a first guitar, that is very impressive!

I did not have any types of kit’s, a buddy asked if I could build one and sent a photo of something he liked. This is what was the design we agreed upon, the final electronic setup was done by a local Luthier.
So glad I saved the leftover Sapelle, I believe I found a good use for it.
Thanks for the complements

Very Cool. Where did you happen to get the pickups? Looks Great!

I purchased the electronics from , they offer great deals and excellent advice on guitars.
For the back cover I decided to make a wood cover, instead of the typical plastic ones. The wood color and grain pattern will match once the finish is cured
