No, it's far from luxury, but a great first intro to steel. Basic out of the box with a nice case and legs. Yes, go ahead and replace the strings with something made for steels, and likely some flat-wounds. I had a buzz or two so check the nut slots and saddles for clean round- bottomed slots. (use correct nut files) I played it with a glass slide and a metal one. Glass is clear and high, while the steel has more edge and sustain. Run this through a distortion or some other pedal and have some fun.

I couldn't wait for my Lap Steel to arrive only to be let down by the LOUSY ELECTRONICS,Severe loud Hum, Popping and Static sounds when touching any metal parts. Volume and Tone controls are weak and noisy.

Tuners are TRASH! They are loose and won't hold string tension. I've plugged this "DUST COLLECTOR" into and through all my amps using various cables and the same loud hum, popping and static sounds persists.

I am a musician of 42+ years and a Luthier. I know my instruments. If you are willing to take a chance on purchasing this Lap Steel be prepared to either send it back or replace the electronics yourself.

It's a roll of the dice on this product. I have bought many items from Musicians Friend and this is the first time I have been unhappy with any product I've gotten from them.

Nice Lap Steel for a Steal

Comments about Rogue RLS-1 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

I am a guitar player and wanted to try a lap steel. There is not much to choose from in this category. I saw the Rouge on sale on deal of the day and picked one up for a real steal. It plays nice and it intonates well. It has individual string height and intonation adjustments similar to a Fender bridge. The finish is excellent, mine is metallic blue. It has a single coil pickup similar to a strat pickup. It came setup for C6 tuning. The scale length is 21". It comes with three adjustable legs and a gig bag. The gig bag is very nice quality and holds everything in it's own compartment. Well worth the price of admission.

Comments about Rogue RLS-1 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

I was searching through folk instruments on MF's site and ran across this steel lap guitar. The blue version was on sale and, for the price, I thought, why not. As others have said, the strings are awful and they barely keep a tune. But that's a simple fix. I'm having a blast playing around with this. It's a price point that lets you try something new without breaking the bank. Thanks for offering this!

  • Good learning instrument

Comments about Rogue RLS-1 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

I have played guitar (electric and acoustic for most of my life) as well as ukulele and keyboard. I saw some very nice blues played on lap steel and blues is my favorite genre of music so I thought, what the heck...give it a shot. The Rogue came yesterday and I have been noodling with it a lot since then. It was packed well and in great condition and the workmanship is actually quite good. Finish is nice as is the chrome. It tunes up well and holds tune pretty well and the intonation is also pretty good. Now I just have to learn that style of playing. The C6 tuning is different than what I am used to but should be easy to learn.(?) I may end up changing the strings to another gauge and tuning but I need to find out if it can handle heavier strings.

Comments about Rogue RLS-1 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

Quality seems to be very good. For the money you cannot go wrong. It can be improved by changing out the pickup for a higher quality one, but I doubt I will. This is to determine if I can learn it, and if so, will then by a better one to play and continue to use this one for practice.

    The strings were poor, replaced them. The legs were weak so I replaced the screws. It all seems working great now. I'm a beginner on the lap steel though I do play guitar, bass and drums as a hobby. For the money the lap steel was a steal!!!

      Comments about Rogue RLS-1 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

      Bought impulsively on special deal. I intend to mod with different pickups and to remove the tone knob and put in a switch. It does hum a lot as it is single coil. Build quality is good but the tone knob doesn't do anything and grinds. Stand is surprising sturdy on a flat surface. Good for learning but can easily see that it is not for performing IMO. No slide is provided, so that adds some cost.

        Saw this at reduced cost
        So why not. Haven't been able to play it much yet. Looking for a book to try to learn to play it. May end up giving it to a friends granddaughter. She wanted an electric guitar for Christmas but at 7 years old I figured it would only frustrate her.
