I am interested in buying a lap slide guitar. I don't know if any of you are familiar with Ben Harper's style of playing this type of guitar, but this is what I want. Anyone know of any good places to get one?

Re: Lap Slide Guitar

I've been looking for a lap slide guitar too. However I can't afford a Weissenborn original since they are antiques and cost up to and above $3,000 and the Asher model, which is an acoustic/electric model made with Ben in mind, costs about $2,000. However, Superior makes an affordable lap slide in the style of the Weissenborn starting at around $700-800 and I saw that Guitar Center carries 2 models of lapslide guitars both under $600.

Re: Lap Slide Guitar

I just saw Greg's posting about wanting a lap slide guitar, while in search of a good lap slide guitar. I love ben harper's music, and I am really interestind in learning to play a lap slide guitar. If anyone has info. please send it to me. I know you can buy a lap guitar/skateboard on ben's site.. hehe. His electric lap slide guitar was made by an Australian company....

Hey Greg,
Don't know if you have had any follow ups but Ben Harper plays a Weisenbaum electric slide guitar I think.
Happy slidin'
