FAQ

Q: How tall will the stand extend? Far enough to play standing up?
A: Yes The maximum height of the stand is 48" The lap steel itself with the body and fret board is just under 2" so the total height (max) is about 50" off the ground. The minimum height of the leg is 27" So the instrument has a height range with the stand of approximately 29" to 50" off the ground.

Q: How do you tune it?
A: The lap steel comes from the factory tuned to Open G (D-G-D-G-B-D). However, unlike most any other lap steel available, this model comes with an ADJUSTABLE BRIDGE, which means a variety of tunings are possible. Blues and Rock players tend to favor Open G and Open A. Open A raises each of the notes a whole-step (2 frets) to E-A-E-A-C#-E. Open D and Open E are also commonly used. Open D is tuned D-A-D-F#-A-D, and open E is a whole-step higher: E-B-E-G#-B-E. Joe Perry of Aerosmith uses Open E on his electric lap steel. David Lindley is another player who uses transposed variations of these tunings. Bluegrass and Country Dobro players tend to favor an altered G tuning, often called "High-G", where the 6th string is tuned up to "G" instead of down to "D", and the 5th string is also tuned up, to B: G-B-D-G-B-D. They also sometimes raise it up to "High-A": A-C#-E-A-C#-E.
