What we say:
This handsome lap steel is part of Gretsch’s Electromatic range. Designed of course to sit on the lap, this Hawaiian-style Lap Steel is one charismatic instrument.
Made with a large satisfying chunk of Mahogany, this fabulous instrument uses one chrome-covered single coil pickup to get it’s rootsy and exotic sounds.
The strings go through the body for greater resonance and the bridge has a chrome cover for your palm to rest on as you twang away.
The white plastic fingerboard (which of course you never really touch) has 28 frets and a serious on unusually shaped fret markers like triangles and diamonds to lend some character and style to the visuals. This model, the G5700, has a Tobacco Sunburst finish.
The retro Art Deco-style control panel sports a master volume and master tone: the volume is close to the bridge so volume swells are easy to perform.
This is the kind of instrument that can really add something new to your recordings and live sessions: grab your favourite bottleneck and give this a try!
