Meet "Sterling!" Sterling is a 6-string acoustic lap steel. He is made from an antique 100-year-old wooden violin case with original hardware. He features antique door plates for the sound hole covers, chrome open gear tuners and fret markers made from cable & pop rivets. Strings are elevated to allow for lap slide playing. Normal finger fretting is not possible. The case opens. Contact me direct via my contact info (info@meloddities.com.)
