Thanks to you all. That makes sense.

But Bong, is your Lap Steel electric, is it amplified ?
If yes, can you still play it acoustic ? And do you use the same kind of Ampli that is used for regular guitar ?



My lap steel is electric and hence, amplified. It has 3 fretboards with 8 strings on each fretboard. Because it's a solid slap of wood, it doesn't put out much sound unless amplified. And yes, it's the same amplifier as a regular guitar - A 100-Watt Marshall full stack. (just kidding, I use a Roland Jazz Chorus 90)
