Good value introduction to lap steel

By: on 14 June 2021
I have been eyeing off a lap steel for some time as I cannot get the hang of playing slide on a conventional guitar despite many attempts. The MSL110, coming with gig bag, legs, tone bar and even a lead for $199.00 and free shipping, cannot be beaten. The unit itself is beautifully finished and the legs screw in easily and have a good range of adjustment. The ability to split the pickup into a single coil id a bonus although I don't see myself using it. The humbucking configuration produces the fullest tone. I agree with those who have changed the strings. The fitted strings are far too light and even in open E tuning (which does not necessitate any of the strings to be tuned down) the top strings were too light for the weight of the tone bar and the bottom string, played on its own lacks body. I think dobro gauge strings are the go. The lead provided is not good quality, insufficient shielding I think and a better quality lead is warranted. The volume and tone pots work well although I have opted to obtain a volume pedal which I think is essential equipment and you don't need to pay a lot for it. The supplied tone bar works well although I am planning to upgrade to a shaped one for better control. Played through an amp or directly into an interface the tone is great, given the price. I am giving it 4 stars because of the build, the basic sound and the value even though I am knocking off one star for the strings. I think the manufacturer or distributor should be prevailed upon to fit proper gauge strings. I can't see that it would cost any more. The tuners appear to work fine and it holds the tuning although it may be premature to say this prior to fitting the gauge of string that the instrument deserves. It may be that the reason that the light strings come as standard is to avoid putting extra tension on the tuners. only time will tell.

Thank you for leaving a review about the Lap Steel guitar. I am sorry to hear that there are aspects of the guitar that did not work for you. The guitar is meant to introduce players to playing lap steel and is a budge friendly means of getting one. We appreciate your feedback and we will definitely have this forwarded to our factory.

Wicked instrument for the price.

As usual artist guitars deliver awesome quality for a good price. I've played guitar for 11 years but I'm a complete beginner on lap steel and I couldn't be happier with the MSL110. Sounds great, intonation is perfect, plays great, pots aren't crooked or tight, fretboard is gorgeous, it's lightweight. The only complaint I have is the tuning peg on the 2nd string 'jumps' at a point when turning but it still tunes to pitch and stays there. Could not recommend this lap steel enough to anyone just getting into it, it's a superb instrument!

As always from Artist Guitars a well made product at a great price. Solid construction perfectly set up, good pick-up, reliable tuners and good to look at. Arrived within a few days again Artist Guitars are so reliable. As different tunings recommend different string gauges it may help to have the string gauges in the product description. Very happy and no issues getting started

My first lap steel and I am loving it. . I restrung it lefthanded as i am lefty guitarist but handled that no problem. Knobs not really in way as long as use 90 degree lead. . You can spin the leg mounts around too if need be .. the standard slide / tonebar is bit too small for my liking and that is my next purchase. I put new heavier guage strings on and it sounds good and the pick up is pretty ace . Cool product

Neil from Iron Knob S.A. Item arrived safely and well packed. Just starting to learn Lap steel. Easy to put together and also came with extra power cable and slide. Sounds great once re-tuned to C6 Would recommend this product for learners and pros. For the price GREAT. Will recommend these products.

The guitar arrived by courier promptly and in tact. There were no instructions for assembly, tuning or maintenance also one of the holes was not drilled properly so I had to force the leg into the hole....I may have stripped the thread on that leg. I connected it to an amplifier and it sounds ok, time will tell if it stays in tune. So far I would say it is good value for money.

REVIEW ARTIST MSL110 LAP STEEL 6 STRING

By: on 8 February 2019
As usual the item was posted immediately, I think it took 3 or 4 working days to arrive and it was very well packed and protected. The instrument itself is very nice, the only blemish I could see was a little bit of gold paint missing from a couple of frets but that is not worth bothering about and doesn't affect performance of the instrument. For the price I think it is a great starter instrument and sounds great. I would have spent that money in one afternoon at the pub but instead I am having hours of fun on this little lap steel. Would recommend it to anyone considering getting one.
