Special-shaped lap steel with rising tide fret markers for a true Hawaiian Island look and feel.

Luna's Weissenborn-style select acoustic lap steel features the same distinctive abalone fret markers as their High Tide Series ukuleles. A full moon at the first fret tugs at the waves that grace the rosewood fingerboards.

Acoustic lap-style guitars first emerged in Hawaii in the 1890s, where players raised the action of their standard guitars, laid them flat on their laps, and learned to play melodies with a metal bar sliding along the strings. Los Angeles-based luthier Hermann Weissenborn refined the concept in the 1920s. Electric lap steels were developed in response for the desire for louder volume.
