"I'm as excited about having this guitar in the world as much as my music really. It's that amazing of an electric guitar." - Ben Harper
The Ben Harper Signature Model lap steel simultaneously captures the classic tone of the revered '59 Les Paul guitar, the unique vibe of a vintage Weissenborn, with the feel and sustain of an Asher lap steel.
Bill Asher's modern design creates tremendous playability and increased tone options for a more creative and musical experience. Each instrument is hand built using the finest tone woods, hardware, electronics, and lacquer finish available. Truly a unique hybrid, the Ben Harper Signature Model may be one of the most exciting lap steels ever built.
