Good value

John E. English, amazon.com

  • Summary: I wanted a lap steel and had thought for a long time about building one. Even with the parts I have on hand, I would spend almost as much on additional materials as the cost of this Recording King. Despite the inconsistent reviews both here and other places, I got this based on my ownership of another Recording King guitar, the ROS-6. As with that instrument, this one seems to offer a lot in terms of value.

Good value for an entry level lap steel

  • Summary: For the asking price, this is a good deal. Remember that good lap guitar sound also requires the purchase of a quality steel tone bar and an decent amp... the Recording King sounds great! But if you're playing with a coke bottle through an aux PA speaker don't blame the terrible sounds on the lap guitar. For the price... I give mine 5 stars.

It's Cheap Beginner/Hobbyists Lap Steel...BUT WORTH IT!

  • Summary: I have been a musician for over 25 years and decided to pick up playing lap steel. I didn't want to spend a lot of money if it ended up being something I didn't enjoy and at this price there wasn't much risk. Unlike the other reviewers mine showed up in perfect working order. No scratches or dings. I don't get what they were complaining about the neck being reflective...it's pearloid-esque. Not overly reflective just pretty.

Think twice

  • Summary: This was a huge disappointment. Read the ad and looked at the manufacturer's website and it looked like a great deal. After arrival I unpacked the guitar and plugged it into my amp. Surprise! No sound. So I tried a different cable and still had no sound. Next, I took the back cover plate off to look at the wiring and discovered I had sound with the plate off. Put the cover plate back and had no sound.
