The classic sunburst model has traditional-style tuners on a Recording King headstock.

Comments about Recording King RG-32 Lap Steel Guitar:

Received very quickly from MF. Immediately restrung
with a set of C6th Strings. I noticed that the P90
pickup is about 30% hotter(louder) than the Strat
style single coil on my other lap steel. Intonation
is spot on. Super value for the price. Sets right in my universal lap steel stand. Will work great for the country dive bars I usually play at.

Comments about Recording King RG-32 Lap Steel Guitar:

This is a nicely finished and fitted instrument for the price. It's an excellent value and it sounds and feels great.
The cons:
The picture in the description doesn't actually match the product. The body is identical, but the headstock is more ornate, and the tuners are steel buttoned instead of the mint plastic buttons. The headstock/tuners look like the other lapsteel (RG 31). No big deal, and I don't really care.

Second, the pickup has a bit of hum, but for the price it's fine. About the noise you'd expect from a cheap P-90.

Lastly, and the biggest for me, the nut slot is cut waay too deep. This is at a critcal juncture at the headstock/neck joint area. I feel the depth of the slot weakens this area. I can push on the headstock with light pressure and hear the strings go sharp. When tuning up from severe flatness, the headstock will flex enough that you have to retune 2-3 times to bring it to pitch. I feel that a drop that would land on the headstock area probably wouldn't do it any good, possibly breaking it. It may be stronger than it appears though. All in all, for the money, it's an excellent instrument.

Comments about Recording King RG-32 Lap Steel Guitar:

When you first see the guitar it looks like a toy. I was not very happy with that. But as a beginner It will work fine for now.
The pickup has a hum but not bad.
It also arrived with a small blemish on the very top of the head stock. Looks like from the factory finish.
It will work for a beginner lap steel.
