Here is indeed one of the most beautiful sounding Weissenborn Style guitars we have ever played. Rarely had the luck to hear a lap slide with such a full, sweet & bright tone.

This marvellous instrument is hand crafted by UK luthier David Savage.
The Lap Steel has a light construction (1.5KG) giving a great resonant tone. It features a teak faced solid mahogany head & mahogany bridge with a hard aluminium alloy insert as commonly used on the old original Weissenborns.
