New Chicago 51 model 6 string lap steel in walnut, with body shape based on a Valco model from the 1940s.  Strung 13-56 for open E (though I like to drop the top string to C# for E6 - that way you can play your country/Hawaiian sounding licks and still have a beefy bottom end for power chords...). I think this is the best sounding steel I've built to date:
  • 635mm (25") scale
  • Body/neck of American black walnut (2 piece construction) with Tru-oil finish
  • Walnut fretboard with maple veneer fret markers & pearloid dots
  • Rocklite Ebano, maple & walnut headstock veneers
  • Handmade aluminium bridge/stringholder & nut
  • Golden Age 3-on-a-plate tuners
  • 2.34kg
  • Vintage style Golden Age P90 pickup, 500k Alpha pots, .022 Mallory 150 tone cap, Daka-ware knobs, Electrosocket output jack; pickup & control cavities shielded with copper foil
  • GHS strings 13-56 (open E tuning - EBEG#BE low to high)
  • Padded gig bag
