During the last years, I learned to admire the Lap Steel Guitar. You can play swampy blues tunes and sweet Nashville melodies. I love also the simple concept of this instrument. My choice is the Road King RG-32-SN. A really affordable but solid Lap Steel.
I am using the Dobro G-Open Tuning.
I am pretty sure that you will hear it on the next Kissing Lucifer release.
