The ideal summer project: over the next couple of weeks the author will publish the complete building of a lap steel guitar at his web site BuildYourGuitar.com.
The author Martin Koch says: “Making a lap steel guitar is a good way of starting to get into guitarbuilding. A lot of steps are the same as in building a conventional guitar but several factors make building a lap steel easy. In fact, the most difficult part will be learning to play the instrument, but that’s a different story.”
BuildYourGuitar.com is the web site of luthier, publisher and author Martin Koch. He published a book and a multimedia CD-ROM on building electric guitars and is currently working on a book on lap steel guitars. It will be available in the fourth quarter of 2003 at amazon.com or the authors web site.
