Hi Kevin, Thanks for the kind words on my lap steel. I will have to try that A tuning you are using. The binding is curly maple from Stewart McDonald, luthier's supply company at, just in case you haven't heard of them, not the cheapest prices but a great place for whatever you need! The pickup is a passive unit made by's a humbucker but stacked so it fits in a single coil ring, the ring came from Stew Mac too and I think it's pretty unique looking too. For more pictures and a description of the instrument, check out my page on the lapsteel in the "Guitar Gallery" section of my website at this link:

Thanks again and welcome to the Guitarmakers Group!

Hey Kevin,
I see you build and play lap steel! I have just finished building my first and am now learning to play. I am starting with the standard guitar tuning as I have been told that it should be easier for an old guitar player to find the notes! What do you think about that? I wish to play like the slide guitar (actually pedal steel) in Neil Young's "Harvest" album stuff! I realize that Ben Keith was a pedal steel player and that is another animal, but I like that sound. I have already used it in a recording of an original song, but it was an easy part. I will post that song soon for comments...anyway, here is what mine looks like:

It took me a while to build it in my pare time. Whatta ya think?
