I added some of my own touches to the classic 2X4 lap steel design. From a common 2X4 comes a really great sounding instrument. The finish took a long time with the metallic. Other than that it was a pretty easy build.

I'll be the first to say it:  I LOOOOOOOVE SPARKLE PAINT!   Probably from ogling the Silvertones at Sears so much when I was a kid. . .

Holy cow... a Jim Morris comment. It's always good to get an "attaboy" from one of the best builders/players on CBN. Thanks for checking out the video.

Great build Poorness! Thanks for explaining the whole thing to us. Sounds fantastic!

Thanks Danny, Richard, & AD. Glad you fellas like the build. I need to spend some more time with it to get that Nashville sound but... it seems like a good build.
