Little lap steel love!

My 1936 7 string Ricky


My 1960 Fender Deluxe 8


My 1957 Fender Stringmaster D8


My one off custom design William's D8


Sold all the pedal steels.. I cant chew gum and walk at the same time!

In fact, sold off all my guitars except for my A59 335 Nashville historic..

The Fenders played through my 1971 Vibrolux Reverb (original tubes, 2nd owner) sound so juicy, you just cant believe it...

1948 Epiphone Duo Console:



1940 National New Yorker (and matching Model 75 amp):




This 1920s Slingerland parlor was built as a Spanish-style guitar, but the neck has bowed considerably. Otherwise it's in great condition, and it has a loud, booming voice that belies its size. The price was right, too, so I turned it into a Hawaiian guitar with a nut extender:



Two Oahus that I used to own, a ca. 1940 Diana and a 1953 Iolana:




Two more that I used to own, a '30s Epiphone Electar and a '35 National Electric Hawaiian:

Nice Pamona there Quarter tell us how you have the benders set up and what tuning you are using.

I have a '57 Fender Steelmaster that looks like this:

Not very detailed, but I always liked these two photos of my Emmons. It's a '75 D10. I've been playing it through a Furlong/Sarno combo amp, with the Sarno Classic Pre and a JBL K130.

I have two lapsteels: a newer Bluestem and an older Mason. They're great fun to play and add a little something special to certain recordings.

Some Valco Goodness - 1950s Oahu Tonemaster with the strings through pickup



Also a 1929-1931 First Hawaiin Conservatory of Music concert. You got this free when you ordered lessons from Oscar Schmidt's mail order music business. This was Schmidt's standard Stella - all birch, angled neck heel, square top kerfing, arched back - set up as a lap guitar. I converted it to a regular old geetar.

Here is my 1957 Gibson Electraharp with original PAF pickup. I am in the process of building a lapsteel... my winter project.

'53 Fender Stringmaster (26" scale, serial # 0069); 1960's ZB transformed into 10 string lap steel, sitting on a 1930's Ludwig drum throne.
