    Rosewood Pettingill P6 Deluxe Lap Steel ... Easy On The Eyes And A Sweet Voice

    Thanks again all! Its pretty easy to make them look nice when you get to play with some of natures best. I'll bet one of Lollars gold foils would mix great with one of his horseshoes! I recently used one of his gold foils on my Coronet prototype and it had a sweet voice. .

    Rosewood Pettingill P6 Deluxe Lap Steel ... Easy On The Eyes And A Sweet Voice

    Thanks guys ... Your kind words are much appreciated! I'm extremely lucky to have the opportunity to build them. In other good news, Lollar has sorted things out and has put the Horseshoes back on the menu. I just got an 8 string version for a sister build to this one.

    My Take On A Cherry Burst ... No Clowns Allowed

    Another thanks to all ... It was a fun project :) Lap steels are a fun build. There is such a rich and deep history to draw inspiration from. Besides being a fun build, steel guitar is a ton of fun in itself. Its a very versatile instrument that can find a home in the mix of most any music style.

    Thanks! I wanted something to give a nod to the white outlined frets of the original Bakelites it was modeled after. They are made of fiber veneer from LMI.

    Rosewood Pettingill P6 Deluxe Lap Steel ... Easy On The Eyes And A Sweet Voice

    Thanks! :) ... it turned out to be all I had hoped. Its just a shame that Lollar is no longer making those Horseshoes, they are quite tasty. I had this one stashed back waiting for a special project to use it on.

    Rosewood Pettingill P6 Deluxe Lap Steel ... Easy On The Eyes And A Sweet Voice

    Here is a fun one I thought some might like to see, a P6 Deluxe in cocobolo with birdseye maple trim. She is easy on the eyes and has that classic sweet voice! Its a shame that these Lollar Horseshoes are no longer available, they are very nice. A fun detail, one of the goals / requests when...

    Angel 8 With A Multibender

    One of my favorite parts of a build is getting feedback from their owners. Sure, its nice to hear all about how good looking they are, but in particular I like best when I get feedback on both sound and playability. Its always great to know you hit the mark...

    Angel 8 With A Multibender

    Here is a fun one I just finished up and thought I might share. I had a request to build an 8 string version of my Angel 6 string so I dug through my stash and found that I had just enough of that sweet figured sapele do do one more. She is 25" scale, figured sapele and birdseye maple, gold...

    New Pettingill P6 Deluxe Prototype 001 ... Not your Grandads Bakelite

    This is a project I've wanted to do for a long time and I'm tickled to have had the chance to bring it to life. Its everything I had hoped it would be, great looks and a sweet voice. As happy as I am, I'm also sad that Lollar will not be making any more of the Horseshoe pickups. I've got one...

    Most bad-ass use of a Kauer Banshee to date (rival sons!)

    So how does everyone feel about the Builder's & Retailer's Emporium being closed

    Just my 2c, but considering the volume of adds, I'd think two categories makes sense, simply New and Used.

    Thanks again all :) Technically yes, but besides a basic single page, I've not done anything with it since I registered it a few years back. I really should get something more up, but my html skills are lacking and its not been a high priority. Unfortunately that one is not available, but the...

    Lap Steels Rule!! .. My latest Creation

    Thanks all, I am very happy how she turned out and more importantly, her owner has a huge grin too :) That was a nice hunk that I'd had stashed for a while. There is enough leftover from that billet for a sweet neck through design ... maybe a Teardrop or a Deco style like Angel. Unless it gets...
