A Birthday/Christmas Gift for VegasDan

VegasDan and Lynda have sold there Tradewinds and settled down in Nebraska but we still see them on occasion and of course phone calls. Friends for life made right here on iRV2.

This fall for a project I decided to make Dan a Lap Steel Guitar. Dan was in a garage band back in the day and still gets together on occasion with the old group "The Rockin' Rogues"
I had never made one of these so it became quite a challenge. After a few mistakes which repairing added to the challenge it's finally done.
Happy Birthday Dan

Pictures here.

A fine looking gift I'm sure he will enjoy, being hand built only adds more to it.
