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.

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

    Rogue always gets a bad rap and I'm not quite sure why. I've owned several rogue instruments and maybe I've been lucky but they have always been really good inexpensive instruments. Now to this lap steel. Rest assured this is a beginners lap steel. Nothing fancy, plastic fret board and nut. :Pickup seems powerful enough for practicing and small rooms. Finish is really good for such a cheap unit. I changed strings almost immediately and will probably search for a better nut in the future. If you are looking to get into something new you cannot beat this guitar for learning or re-learning the lap steel. I am completely satisfied with this purchase.

    Falling Apart Within An Hour

    Pros

      Cons

      • Breaks Easy
      • Won't Hold Tune Very Long

      Best Uses

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

        So many things wrong even at the low price. A buzz on a couple of the stings. Won't hold tune very long. A leg immediately pulled out of the body and fell off striking a nice 60th Anni Strat sitting next to it. The intonation is terrible on each string at the 12th fret. None of them are in tune. The top string saddle is terribly twisted. This is not complaining as some fanboys would have you believe. This is pure fact all within the first hour of getting it out of the box. It looks like it's hit and miss with this item. Will be sending it back as soon as possible.

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

        It really is not much even at the low price it cost, the tone and volume pots are cheap. It will need better strings right away and the plastic nut is awful as well. i am not sure that it would be a good starter instrument because of the cheap build quality.The legs will cross thread very easy so be extra careful and take your time screwing them in. Most of the complaints you read about this unit are true because the build quality is not dependable or consistent at all, one may be good and the next one may be junk! Good Luck.

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

            I got this lap steel just to try out a different instrument and to add a different sound to the music at local jam sessions where I play. Guitars are always plentiful, so its nice to play something unique that can add a different sound to the mix. I liked the previous reviews about the Rogue Lap Steel so I decided to give it a try. Got the metallic blue and it looks nice. Set up was easy right out of the box. Hooked up the adjustable legs, tuned it to open E and then plugged it into my Music Man 115-Sixty Five tube amp. It sounded great to me with no buzzing or humming coming from the pickup. Great Tone & Sound for such an unbelievable price. Also, came with a nice carrying case. This is my first time at playing a lap steel and it's impressed me as well as some of my other musician friends. Great for learning and fun to play.
            P.S. When I purchased this from Musician's Friend I also got me a Tone Bar, Thumb & Finger Picks, plus an extra set of Strings. You'll need them if it's your first lap steel.

            I use this guitar at home for pleasure.
            I am impressed with the quality of this guitar. The overall impression is excellent and the workmanship is very good with good quality machine heads and beautiful finish and the tone is great. Very good quality for the money....as a matter of fact, to purchase the same item here in Canada would cost at least three times the amount I paid. Well done, Musician's Friend, and thank you!
