#55 console lap steel

November 2011.

Double neck lap steel guitar, with a long scale length (650mm). The instrument is designed freely to some old console type of lapsteel guitars. Because of the heigth differences in the body, the heads can be removed completely for maintenance. The lap steel guitar is designed specially to fit lower baritone tunings. The long scale lenth compensates the low string tension, so the instrument still plays well. For noise free operation, a set of EMG active pickups has been fit in. The legs are removable, and two wooden clamps give more stability when the instrument is standing.
