From 1951, this lap steel has lived a good long life, has stood the test of time, and has been carefully loved throughout it's life.  This lap steel is fully functional and sounds fantastic. All original except for replacement tuners and a replaced output jack and plate. Finished in Salmon Blue, this is notable as this color was only available by Gibson starting in mid 1951.  This lap steel has been thoroughly checked over and fully set up by our in-house luthiers, and is ready to be the secret ingredient to your sonic sauce!
