Book Description

Jan. 1 2004
This book explains how to make a solid-body lap steel guitar. Because building a lap steel is relatively easy, it provides an excellent introduction into the art of guitarbuilding. With 225 photos and 40 line drawings, Martin Koch shows how to make two different lap steel guitars in simple, easy-to-follow steps. He even explains how to make your own guitar pickup using the world's simplest pickup winder. The author puts special emphasis on the use of hand tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's ALL in this one book. April 22 2004
Format:Paperback
As with is other book, Martin Koch tells you ALL you need to know to build a beautiful instrument.
From building 2 types of lap steel's from A to Z, to making the case and even making your own pickups, this book as it all.
This is my second book by Martin Koch and let me just say that his books are a gold mine of information from cover to cover.
Martin Koch also as a website that compliments his books where you can ask questions, see other instruments people have built and there are also good tools such as Fret Calculator and stuff.
Trust me......if you want to build your own instrument, you will not regret purchasing this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you need... May 7 2007
By Robert C. Lester - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
..to build your first Lap Steel. The book is well laid out, clear, and well suited to a beginners approach. I had never done any musical woodworking projects, and this book (Along with the guidance of some skilled woodworking friends) walked me comfortably through the steps to completing a good looking and good sounding lap steel. Very rewarding purchase. Can't recommend it enough.
