|Playability/Action||Action is typically kind of high on steel guitars. Barre chords are a bit tough unless you use a steel… The full 25″ scale length is quite a comfortable reach, and allows the strings to have enough tension for lower pitches.|
|Comments||This GoldTone LS-8 8-String Lap Steel is a great and affordable lap steel, a reproduction of the 1950’s Oahu ToneMaster. The 8 strings give it enormous range and it can cover most any type of music. A 6-string version is also available for $559 with case.|
