Item Description
This auction is for a BRAND NEW, Made in the USA, Dan Walsh
Signature Model Lap Steel from Fouke Industrial Guitars. Endorsing
artist Dan Walsh plays with Canadian artists Brock Zeman, Romi
Mayes, Fred Eaglesmith, does session work, and is also a solo
artist. You can check out some sound samples of various Industrial
lap steels (including this model) on my website under the Artist Endorsements - MP3's
link, Dan Walsh section.

I've had great success with using the bent heavy tube frames
in these models, as well as some of my other instruments. It helps
in achieving great sustain, tone, and a surprising amount of
acoustic volume due to the "tuning-fork" type reaction the bent
frames give, even on the narrow dimensioned lap steels I also make.
I combined this approach with the smaller pan shape that Dan
requested back when this model was first introduced.

This lap steel features a black, alnico magnet, PAF style humbucking
pickup. These are outstanding p/ups for clean, or overdriven
applications, feature the warmer alnico magnet tone, and are of a
high quality construction. Also included is a mini coil cut switch for more tonal options.

Retail on this model with the included
options & gig bag is normally $680.00. Once again on this
instrument, the bent tube framework provides a surprising amount of
acoustic volume, and is plenty loud for enjoyable practice when
used unplugged.

This instrument comes equipped with the same removable rubber
feet on the back plate that I provide on many of my current models.
It also features a removable control access panel on the back. With
the removable rubber feet on the back, they can easily be used on a
desk or table without fear of scratching the furniture (if you
prefer to play your steel somewhere other than sitting on your
lap). Allowing the rear plate of the instrument to resonate freely
when used in this manner, also provides an additional dimension to
the tone these produce.

This lap steel also comes with a high quality USA made gig
