Harmos Americana Lap Steel Guitar I wanted to try these since I 1st heard of them. But didn't get around to it until recently. Now they are no longer being made. I am quite pleased to have the opportunity to play one. I found it overall to be a superior lap steel. Although I have several favorites, I rate it among those at the top of my list. I am torn about offering it for sale. But I'm at a place where it makes sense to put it out there & see what happens. Some reviews: I have a Harmos Lap Steel Model One with the Chicago pup & it is any thing but sterile. I also have two National Dynamics/1941 & 1951, a 40s Oahu Tonemaster, all of which I love to play, but the Harmos smokes them all. It has a great clean sound, & when you push it with an amp or something like a Tube Screamer, it really kicks a**. Check out Jerry Douglas' new CD, he plays a Harmos on it & even thanks Harmos on the liner notes. Joe Perry & Robert Randolph play them also. I'll admit, when I play it out, people make comments about the look of the Harmos, but "every" time, my friends & fellow players that hear me play over time, say that the Harmos is the best sounding lap that I have. (Lollar pup...truely a work of art) Google Harmos lap steel & check out the website...it is an instrument that really works. Hey, JD can't be wrong!!!....Terry VunCannon The Harmos guitars are no beauty queens, that's for sure, but their lap steels - who's built over the same principles and using the same materials - are reported to have a very balanced tone with very rich harmonics and absolutely no dead spots anywhere in the register. Not many traditional lap steels you can say that about,- even my $3K Asher and my new GeorgeBoards has a few dead spots, especially above the 12th fret......Steinar Gregertsen Carbon fiber space frame body.
