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.

    No Complaints - Nice Little Lap Steel for the Money

      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.

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

      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!

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

          For the price, you can't expect much more than you get. However, this little lap steel is decent, and for the most part, a good starting point. In fact, within two weeks of playing it, I was in a professional studio recording steel parts on a new album.

          I only have two complaints - the plastic nut, which is horrible for the tone (I'm looking to replace it with brass), and, one of the legs has already broken (the screw that tightens the extension is already threaded). I take very good care of my instruments, so I was surprised when this happened. Of course, it happened while I was setting it up in the recording studio, so I had to take some scotch tape and bind the leg and extension together.

          Other than that, I'm glad I bought this - it's allowed me to add new things to our band, and, it has inspired me to move on to a nicer level of lap steel, and eventually pedal steel.

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

            I gave this 5 stars because it was well worth the money to me as far as an evaluation exercise. I wanted to determine if the Lap Steel as a viable instrument for me to play. Being hesitant after reading some of the reviews, I was very surprised at the great tone and lack of hum as some users had experienced. For the price you cannot go wrong. Tuning holds true even after several days, and the attenuation only required minor adjustments. It will be a great instrument to learn on and probably do some public performances. I can see myself moving on to a better quality instrument in the future, but this one was beyond expectation.
