1956 Fender Champ Lap Steel

A 50s classic, this Fender lap steel came in for a restoration, with original tweed case. The instrument was is remarkable original condition, but like a lot of 50s guitars, the tuning buttons came apart as soon as I tried to tune it. The plastic is so old and brittle they need to be all replaced. 

Missing and worn tuner buttons

 

Pretty basic electronics with a telecaster pickup and Astron cap.

Looking better, tunes to a C6 tuning.

Tweed case, nice!
