I think of the old Rickenbacker lap steels as the quintessential American lap steel example.
So I thought I would make an updated version based on the old Ricks.. I called it the Lindbergh.
Then that got sidetracked to a more modern and sculptural interpretation of the lap steel, so I called it the Yeager.
Uses Pete Biltoft’s Vintage Vibe CC-Rider blade-style pickup. Sounds amazing, and has some innovative construction and sculptural details, too.
