The revamped lap steel features lightweight African mahogany and a neck-through-body construction.

Venice, CA (October 8, 2018) -- The best electric lap steel on the market just got better. Asher Guitar’s Electro Hawaiian Junior 6-string lap steel got a complete overhaul and although the look is generally the same, the telling is in the details.
