I've been looking at different stuff to add to the arsenal. I built a lap steel about 20 years ago out of scrap wood. It was a hybid with two bass courses and 5 tenor courses. That instrument is long gone. I've been scouring the net and came across mr Lamar right in Homestead and I may just throw a radical suggestion at him. He's old school nad makes some real pretty stuff destined for the Opry House... I've seen some models made out of titanium and aircraft aluminum -as well as quality woods. I've also seen John Paul Jones' pedal and lap steel basses (Manson custom) Anyone have a finished product they want to flaunt?
