After several years of design and many prototypes, I'm finally starting production on these electric lap steels.

I got my start building electric lap steels but haven't really built any in about a decade with Weissenborn style guitars keeping me busy enough.

They feature a scaled down version of the 'hourglass' body shape with a figured Tasmanian Blackwood on a Queensland Maple body/neck. Hardware includes this beautiful Schroeder bridge that feels right at home on this Weissenborn inspired design.

Byron Bay Bluesfest kindly gave me the opportunity to present Ben Harper with a Weissenborn to mark the festival's 30th anniversary.

To be able to spend time with Ben talking Weissenborns and hearing him play was a true masterclass.

Thanks to @somefx for capturing the moment.
