These lap steels are made to order, the photo is an example, not the exact lap steel you'll receive. They typically take about a week to complete.They are made of rosewood and walnut with upgrades to specialty woods available. If you have a preference for walnut with or without sapwood (the white part) let me know and I will do what I can. The scale length is 23.5 inches. The tuners are gotoh, (grover sta-ties also available) the pot is cts, and the output jack is switchcraft. The finish is hand rubbed oil. The b bender and g bender are micro adjustable with a machine screws for intonation, and can be set to bend either a half, or full step up. They come strung up for c-6 tuning unless otherwise requested. I've been building instruments since I was 15, so if there is something else you'd like incorporated I can probably accommodate. I started making these just because I wanted to get some pedal steel sounds while recording to do some very simple parts, without having to learn to play one, or have such a large/expensive out fit. Here is a video of me noodling a little bit. Doubtless it would sound better in more experienced hands. I'm not a slide player by any stretch, and this was just recorded with my iphone, so its not super high quality , but hopefully the video is helpful, in any case it shows the benders in action.
