PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Lapdancer Guitars room. In this segment, we get to hear from Loni Spector, creator and the main-man behind the Amp Shows, talk about his line of custom, one-off solidbody electric guitars made under the Lapdancer brand name that started out over 10 years ago as a lap steel guitar company. Lapdancers electrics are unique takes and spins on classics like T- and S-style guitars, including the Holecaster that is a T-style guitar with dozens of holes in it to reduce the guitar's original hefty body weight, two T-style guitars loaded with TV Jones Filter'Tron pickups, and a S-style guitar that commemorates the Amp Shows that Spector has been running for years.
