Alden Original Raw Lap Steel  -  Red

Our friends at Alden Originals have been getting creative with their stock of locally sourced barn wood, creating different models of solid body guitars and lap steels. The Raw Lap Steel series takes an ultra simple (and playful) approach: put strings and a pickup on a 2x4 and let ‘er rip!

Clay Alden winds his own single-coil pickups and tops them with a piece of wood to match or compliment the mounting ring. He makes the bridges out of rolled aluminum mounted in a hardwood tailpiece (occasionally he’ll simply use a Strat hardtail-type tailpiece). A single volume knob takes care of the electronics—and the sound is pure, no-frills Depression-era lap steel.

Raw Lap Steels come in either red, blue or amber. They're also available in natural, but the colors are too good to pass up.
