Up for sale we are offering this store demo Gold Tone LS-6 lap steel guitar. It's in excellent condition.. It plays very nice, and has a great tone!
Here's an overview from Gold Tone:
The Gold Tone LS-6 evokes the Oahu Tonemaster, one of the most revered lap steels of the 1950s. Our version is so close to the original that owners of Oahu instruments buy LS-6 pickups and hardware from us for use in the restoration of their prized guitars. The LS-6 is set up for open D tuning (DADF#AD) but other tunings can be accommodated by installing strings that are gauged for those tunings.
