Appealing to the discerning lap steel player and collector alike, the Gold Tone LS-8 offers an outstanding vintage replica of legendary Oahu Tonemaster -- the lap steel of choice among professional players back in the 1950s. With all of the unmistakable sonic and visual character that made the original an instant classic , the LS-8 sports a traditional tobacco brown two-tone finish over mahogany back & sides, and comes equipped with a soapbar pickup that's identical to the original for that classic lap steel tone. The LS-8 showcases a set of Kluson-style tuners, an ashtray palm cover and a bone nut just as the original. Other features include a maple neck , a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and ABS white binding for the body and neck. Case not included.
