It's pretty easy to build your own lap steel Jan 23, 2008
The book is easy reading and enjoyable. I am making a steel guitar that is a mix of the first and second example. The dimensions are very helpful as is the suggested parts list. I would purchase this book again.
Just what you need... May 7, 2007
..to build your first Lap Steel. The book is well laid out, clear, and well suited to a beginners approach. I had never done any musical woodworking projects, and this book (Along with the guidance of some skilled woodworking friends) walked me comfortably through the steps to completing a good looking and good sounding lap steel. Very rewarding purchase. Can't recommend it enough.
It's ALL in this one book. Apr 22, 2004
As with is other book, Martin Koch tells you ALL you need to know to build a beautiful instrument.
From building 2 types of lap steel's from A to Z, to making the case and even making your own pickups, this book as it all.
This is my second book by Martin Koch and let me just say that his books are a gold mine of information from cover to cover.
Martin Koch also as a website that compliments his books where you can ask questions, see other instruments people have built and there are also good tools such as Fret Calculator and stuff.
Trust me......if you want to build your own instrument, you will not regret purchasing this book.
