I love the sound of traditional country steel (Lloyd Green, Jimmy Day) and would like to be able to add some of this style to augment my lead Tele playing. I am not ready to take on the challenge of pedal steel at this point but thought I would like to try non-pedal steel. With an 8-string lap steel tuned to E9, can you get close to the traditional country steel sound? what make/model would be best for this type of sound as opposed to the fatter, bluesier typical lap steel sound? Thanks!
