Rob Jackson test-drives the first one in the workshop.
The central maple spine within the korina body, and the flame maple "fretboard", take tone and sustain a step forward from the all-korina prototype.




Rees Lap Steel 8

I have developed a less expensive lap steel guitar. 6 string; 8 string; and 10 string versions can be made.
This Lap Steel 8 has a Seymour Duncan Pegasus pickup and locking tuners.
The bridge is made out of hard engineering plastic with through-body stringing.
This provides great warm tone, with extremely long sustain, and no metal harshness.
