Multi-Kord Vintage Lap Steel Pedal Steel Slide Guitar

Rare guitar. Very good original vintage condition . It sounds fine. 2 strings are broken. It will need adjusting or tuning to preference. Beautiful maple(?) body has a nice butterscotch blonde finish. Some chips and checking, and play wear. One of the pedal cables is frayed. Pearl button tuners. Volume and tone controls. Everything is 100% original except the string roller bar on one end, (same piece as the other end), a rod with 6 grooved sleeves, was lost and substituted, and the pots were replaced to restore function. The cloth wiring and pickup are original.

Please review the pics as they are part of the description. A cool and hard to find piece of music history.

As you might already know, 2 legs unscrew and the other two fold up for transport. I will pack it very carefully to arrive undamaged. It will be shipped quickly!

Steel guitars have been used in many music genres. Blues, Country, Hawaiian and others.
