Vintage Epiphone and Framus lap steels Too many lap steels gathering dust at home, too many shiny objects out there that need to be paid for. First is a 1936 Electar Hawaiian, Epiphone's first electric model of any kind. It has Epi's own horseshoe pickup (not a Rick, as is commonly claimed), which has plenty of output and a clear...

1940 Supro 7-string steel Up for sale is a rather unusual old Supro. This model is fairly well documented, but only as a 6-string. This is the only one I have ever seen with 7 strings, either in person or in a catalog. It's definitely factory original, though, and not a later conversion. The pickup in this is the sam...

1961 Guild X-350 electric archtop guitar Up for sale is a Guild X-350B from 1961. The guitar is not perfect but it is in excellent condition. There are a few scattered dings, but no signs of abuse or repair; cosmetically, the guitar looks very good for its age. The only replacement parts are the bridge and two of the switch tips. This m...

Vintage Del Vecchio lap steel I don't have a ton of information on this; there's very little info out there on Del Vecchios in general, and even less on their electric instruments. I'm guessing from the overall styling that it was built in the 1950s or 1960s. The steel has a scale length of about 24 1/8". There's a singl...

1940s lap steel for sale, not sure of builder Up for sale is a lap steel that I believe dates to the 1940s based on the tuners and the large potentiometers. It wasn't a high-end instrument, but it couldn't have been super-cheap either with that cast aluminum hand rest and bridge. The pickup is broadly similar to those found in early Kay stee...

1940s Vega Profundo dreadnought acoustic g... This is an original Vega Profundo from the early 1940s. It has a dreadnought body shape but ladder bracing, which gives it a noticeably different tone than the closest Martin or Gibson models but still gives it a very punchy bass. The tuner knobs have been replaced, but the rest of the guitar - i...

1942 National New Yorker 7-string As part of an ongoing attempt to downsize my collection, I'm offering this steel for sale. It's a 1942 National New Yorker, one of the last 7-strings offered by National. It has a first-generation string-through pickup, which has individual coils for each string. The sound is warm and dark but no...

1950s Alamo Futuramic D8 console steel Up for sale is an Alamo Futuramic dual 8 console steel from the 1950s. I bought this on a whim recently, but I have too many steels already and am looking to pay off another instrument purchase, so off it goes. The steel is in excellent overall condition. There's light wear all around and a ...

1965 National New Yorker I've decided to let one more go. This is a 1965 National New Yorker, one of the last generation before the model was discontinued in 1967. This version has two under-string pickups hidden under the black hand rest. When I got the steel, it was missing one pickup and the blend knob was re-wired in...

1941 Gibson EH-185 Up for sale is a Gibson EH-185 built in 1941. This has the first-generation alnico pickup with adjustable poles. The EH-185 contained a feature that set it apart from cheaper Gibson steels: a metal core running the length of the body. In fact, the EH-185 could be described as a mostly-decorative ...

2008 National Model D Western square neck ... With the acquisition of a custom 7-string Beard, I have decided to let go of this guitar. It sounds fantastic, but I find myself relying on that extra string. Although National Resophonic is known for biscuit bridges and tricones, the Model D is up there with the best spider-bridge guitars. ...

2000 Guild X-170 Custom electric guitar Up for sale is a Guild X-170 built in 2000 at the Westerly, RI factory with some custom features. It differs from a regular X-170 by having P-90 pickups, a single volume and tone control, and a 1 11/16" nut. Otherwise, it's like a regular X-170: thin body, sound post under the bridge, lots of fla...

Ca. 1939 National Sonora electric archtop Up for sale is a National Sonora built around 1939. This is a very historically important guitar, as it was the first model to feature two pickups. It's also exceptionally rare; few were built, and even fewer survive. The guitar features a 17" hollow body built of laminated woods; it was lar...

1951 Vega Triumphal More thinning of the herd. Up for sale is a Vega Triumphal; the pots date to 1951, and (along with the aesthetics) that makes it one of the last Triumphals built. Vega tried to reinvigorate sales around that time by giving this model an opaque off-white finish, a lucite pickup cover/hand rest, an...

I've decided to let go of a few steels; I'm focusing more on other instruments these days and can't justify tying up so much money in pieces that are gathering dust.

I'll say it right up front: this is a round-necked guitar, but the neck has a moderate bow so I am selling it with the proviso that the buyer should expect to play it as a steel. Strung up for fingerstyle, the guitar is playable but the upper frets get difficult. It may be possible to correct the...

Vintage 1953 Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Regent This is a beautiful example of a high-end Epiphone from before the Gibson era. It's not super-clean: there is wear to the finish, miscellaneous nicks and dings, and plenty of checking, but no structural problems, damage or repairs. The neck has been reset, and now it's a superb player with a nice...
