Re: Mounting a Sustainiac B on a lap steel guitar

The heavier the strings, the better the result.  I don't know what gauge you're using but it might be worth a shot.


>I need some advice from you guitar players as Im a novice to stringed instruments. I have used quite a few lap steels in the past, but only with an E-Bow. The thing I disliked about the E-Bow was its buzzing tone, no matter how I placed it. It always tended to sound too "bluesy" for what I had in mind. Im more after that sweet, singing tone Robert Rich coaxes from his lap steel. And thats why I did this:

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
