That Jackson Browne tune with David Lindley on lap steel made me want to build this thing. This is my relic lap steel...22.5" scale with a left over Strat pup, angle aluminum for nut and bridge, and #4 round head screws as position markers. I wanted it to look somewhat like it's been at a flea market, or come out of someone's attic. I used Radio Shack etchant to patina the hardware. It worked great with the exception of the chrome knobs...gotta use something else for those. Anyway...here are some pics. It sounds wonderful...I can't play it properly, but it sounds wonderful.
