These lap steels are made to order, the photo is an example, not the exact lap steel you'll receive. They typically take a couple weeks to complete, but depending on my work load can take a little longer. The body is made of walnut.
If you have a preference for walnut with or without sapwood (the white part) let me know and I will do what I can. They come equipped with a handmade b-bender and g bender. All of the wooden appointments and hardware are made from thermally modified Red oak.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 an open. Bending up the 3rd string to a B gives you a G5 chord on the third and fourth string that sounds like pure pedal steel when bend into it. Bending up a full step on the third and second strings together gives you a G maj chord (the 5 chord in C). 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.
