THE ACOUSTIC HAWAIIAN LAP STEEL

The Asher Acoustic Hawaiian lap steel guitar pays tribute to the Herman Weissenborn lap steels from the late 1920's. In honor of these fine instruments, and to continue the tradition, I have made the finest reproduction possible with the same unique acoustic qualities and distinctive woody tones as its predecessor. From hand-picked koa to the vintage rope binding on our Style IV, the Asher equivalent boasts the same master craftsmanship and sound that will not only perform beyond expectations, but also last a lifetime.
