I found a used Gibson BR-9 Lap Steel guitar for $350 + shipping. Is this a good deal? I don't know a thing about lap steels. I am primarily concerned with intonation issues. I imagine this lap steel has to be better than the Rogues Musician Friends sell for $99.
So how worried should I be about the intonation?

Um, Lapsteels don't have frets. No frets = no intonation.

You can worry about it all you want, but it's not going to change the facts.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.
