OVERVIEW

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.

      attractive guitar, but needed some work. would not stay in tune untill I tightend the nuts on the tuning pegs. Rings like a bell after I put the John Pierce strings on it.

      Comments about Luna Guitars Weissenborn Lap Steel:

      This guitar arrived in perfect shape, with no dings, blemishes or other flaws, and it sounds at least as good as it looks. After tuning up, I was extremely pleased with the guitar's voice -- full-bodied, sweet and strong without being brash. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years, and have had some great ones and some real clunkers I couldn't wait to get rid of. I can honestly find nothing to dislike about this Luna instrument (although I do wish it were made in the USA). I would have to say that for the price, this is probably the best value I have ever gotten on a new instrument and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great entry-level Weissenborn style lap steel guitar. This one is a keeper!

      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.
