Special-shaped lap steel with rising tide fret markers for a true Hawaiian Island look and feel.

Luna's Weissenborn-style select acoustic lap steel features the same distinctive abalone fret markers as their High Tide Series ukuleles. A full moon at the first fret tugs at the waves that grace the rosewood fingerboards.

Acoustic lap-style guitars first emerged in Hawaii in the 1890s, where players raised the action of their standard guitars, laid them flat on their laps, and learned to play melodies with a metal bar sliding along the strings. Los Angeles-based luthier Hermann Weissenborn refined the concept in the 1920s. Electric lap steels were developed in response for the desire for louder volume.

Comments about Luna Guitars Weissenborn Lap Steel:

Finally a good quality Weissenborn guitar at an affordable price. Solid mahogany gives that mellow tone most look for in a hollow-neck Weissenborn. Clean construction, attractive inlays and nicely matched woods add to the overall value of this guitar. Asian-made but high quality makes this a best buy for those looking to try their hand at acoustic lap steel guitar. My only complaint, after questioning Luna's customer service is that is comes standard with light strings. Being that Weissenborns are typically tuned to lower open tunings, it should come fitted with a heavier gauge, Mediums at a minimum. Specialized Weissenborn strings, i.e. John Pearse would be preferable.Will bereplacing the strings as soon as they arrive from Elderly.
