Although I have zero experience with a lap steel, this is my newest acquisition.

Cool! Congrats! Steels are a ton of fun, but a lot harder (for me anyway) than they seem like they should be. I still haven't got the hang of it. Maybe it's all of those skinny strings...
:oops: :roll: :lol:
I have NO idea what to do with those skinny stringed things... I'm just a bass player...

Hey, that could be perfect as a courting lap steel, with a righty and you!
