I haven't had this guitar for very long. But my main lap steel is too different to play both of them equally... and I just bought a Collings acoustic, so this one has to go. I replaced the tone pot, other than that I would guess it's all original. Short scale. The fourth string nut slot may be off a little tiny bit, I notice a little buzz if I don't make an effort to apply pressure with the bar across all the strings. I restrung it with Daddario NYXL strings, they are the best strings I have tried on steel guitar. Tuned to C6th. Original case included. $400 free shipping.
