Overview

Finally learn how to play lap steel guitar without investing in a brand new instrument. Just a spare 2x4 and this parts kit will get you playing in no time. But this is more than just a teaching instrument. The parts contained and the instructions will have you making a lap steel guitar good enough for stage and studio. 

Anyone with a basic knowledge of woodworking can create the 2x4 lap steel. A circular saw, drill and soldering iron are the basic tools needed.

The 2x4 Lap Steel Kit also includes two different sets of strings, enabling you to try traditional Open D (blues) tuning or a more advanced C6th (Country/Hawaiian) tuning.

Modify, decorate and design: We left the design basic so that you're encouraged to 'trick it out' with designs and other mods. Paint yours up or leave it raw. Use plastic zip ties as fret markers if you want. (Zip ties are not included in the kit. They are readily available in most hardware stores.) 

C. B. Gitty's "2x4 Lap Steel" kit allows the DIY luthier to build their own lap steel guitar using their own 2x4 board (not included). Kit includes instructions poster and all of the necessary hardware.

Features

Kit includes
  • Full instructions printed on a 12x18 poster - suitable for framing
  • Two floating bridges
  • Humbucking Pickup
  • Guitar jack and jackplate
  • Six open-gear guitar tuners (3 left, 3 right)
  • Twelve string ferrules
  • Two packs of strings: one for blues and one for Country/Hawaiian C6 tuning
