Here is a fun one I thought I'd share. My Coronet prototype in a hand dyed cherry burst. It is based off a late 1930's Recording King and yes, those are original Bakelite knobs :)

Some basic specs
24" scale
Black Limba / Korina body and neck
Quilt Maple top and headplate
Cocobolo rosewood fretboard / bridge / trim
Lollar Gold Foil pickup
Nickel Silver etched logo
Hand dyed Cherry Burst
Nitro Lacquer finish

I also checked out your work via the link in your sig line. Nice!

When I get my shop set up again, and the current stack of projects finished, a lap steel is on my list! You're an inspiration, man!

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.
