Best value in a lapsteel guitar today?

13.08.2014
For a sound so associated with the south of the USA/Nashville and the music created there, it is somewhat ironic that two German firms have firmly put out what is arguably the best entry-level instrument of its kind in the Harley Benton Slider lap steel guitar.

The variant I have is manufactured by ABM for Harley Benton and it's a very robust, very good sounding lap steel guitar.

When I purchased the instrument I did not have any experience with playing lap steel, but armed with some David Gilmour tablature and a newly-acquired volume pedal (using swells to mimic a pedal steel) it didn't take long to be able to achieve a perfectly passable sound (as a side note, playing this instrument really tests your ear - it's very easy to be slightly out of tune!)

A hot pickup on this sounds great via that volume pedal, a little tasteful delay and into a small tube amp. It included a robust and heavy 'tone bar' which is extremely solid and doubles as a fantastic paperweight.

All in all it's a very good value instrument, especially for a guitarist who doesn't regularly play lap steel - it's sounding great on my recordings and the build quality is absolutely top-notch. Give it a try!

Nice heavy item.. Not flimsy

Robert F. 335, 12.08.2013
I wanted a solid lap guitar.. I use a wheelchair and wanted to use one on a table.. This was the one.. Heavy and well made. Had all the bits i wanted in the instrument. Plus value for money. I purchased a ether slide than supplied and better picks. I purchased the carry box.. Expensive for what it was for, but the actual steel guitar was everything I hoped for. Good sound from the pick ups... It was the best buy given the price range..lots of cheap nasty items available, but this in house model gets a thumbs up
