I'm shopping around for a lap steel guitar, and wanted to know if anyone knows any good ones. I've seen some on ebay for $80, are those worth it? I read somewhere that David Gilmour of Pink Floyd just used the cheapest lap steel he could find back in the 70s, so I'm wondering if you could get a decent sound out of a cheap one. I have a budget of $200, and want to know if I can get a decent lap steel for that price.
$200 will get you all the lap steel you need. i'd try the musician's friend website first, if there's nothing you like there, then go to guitar center. again, if not satisfied, ebay should do just fine
okay nice, any recommended makers? Fender, etc.? I looked for some reviews of lap steels online but couldnt find any really
