Great, cheap Lap Steel
Staggerin' Jon, 13.11.2018
Many people are sniffy about these Lap Steels, but you really can't beat them for price and at the end of the day this is a perfectly usable instrument.
I've toured with one of these and had no problems at all; just make sure you buy the correct strings for the tuning you want to use.
The thing stayed in tune, the pick up is ok (actually stronger than my vintage lap steel) and it's well put-together and the finish has a pretty sparkle.
The legs are a bit flimsy and I'm not too keen on the fender strat-style bridge, but have never got round to replacing it with a fixed right-angle bridge because it works just fine.
At £90.00 if you want to upgrade to better pickups, it's cheaper than building a steel yourself; I'm tempted to buy a matching pair and build a double-neck...
Please though Thomann, bring back the Slider 8!

I have played, for more years than I care to remember,all types of guitar-but never a lap steel slider type.Recent circumstances mean that my fingers are no longer"flexible" enough to play my guitars,so it has given me the opportunity to take the"leap"to a lap type.As I had no idea as to ideal brands or types I decided to buy a"entry level"make.Having dealt with Thomann(and being very impressed by their help and courtesy)I decided to buy this unit.It arrived promptly,well protected with no damage.Once I had tuned it and begun to use the provided slide bar I was delighted by the end result and wide tonal width when played through my Marshall amp.It will be a new learning curve for me but one I am looking forward to.
As with all reviews there are some areas of query and this item is no different-but minor only.
1.It would as a "first timer"have been helpful to have known the"tuning"of this unit.
2.A"leaflet"indicating what strings for what tunings,how many tunings could be obtained and
3.How best to hold the tone bar etc.
Yes I know this can be found from available literature-but it would be an added "bonus" if included.
I hope this review is helpful but Thomann provide such a good service I am sure you can buy with safety
