With a respect to traditional look of the instruments generally called HAWAIIAN STEEL GUITAR we constructed a new unique kind of Acoustic Guitar for “lap-steel-slide-playing”.
It is a squareneck guitar with the top handcrafted from specially selected Spruce and equipped with special triple-X bracing construction. This unique top construction combined with our "bent back", which we use for our resophonic guitars, provides warm and loud full-spectrum sound appreciated by most slide players for sure.
We tune this instrument into the open F (f, a, c, F, A, C) standardly, but a wide spectrum of other variants of tuning is possible to use too.
This piece has Madagascar Rosewood b&s, Alpine Spruce top, traditional brown/white rosette ring and top, fingerboard and peghead binding. Madagascar Rosewood is also used for fingerboard, bridge, headplate and convex rosette. With bone nut, nickel Gotoh open-gear butterbean tuners, tortoise pickguard and ebony pins with pearl dots is instrument the perfect choice for all slide playing lovers …
