Made in sunny California, these “Rick” Lap Steels are from two different yet early eras.
Standing is a “tin” post war steel stuffed with paper from that era to reduce feedback. Purchased from friend and former student Tom Warman.
Sitting in the case is an earlier “bakelite” model with it’s porcelan plates replaced with wooden inserts. This one was aquired from old friend and mentor Bob Campbell Sr.
Both guitars are in perfectly loud and sustaining working order.
