The bridge must always be parallel to the nut at the correct scale length.

Maybe it belonged to Jeff Healey.

Are we really mocking the blind? I mean, why would a blind guy design a see-through guitar, anyway?*

That is kind of cool in an odd sort of way.
However I would not want to deal with the fingerprints.
I have two all aluminum lap steels and the fingerprints drive me nuts.
I think that one might even be worse.
But I still want one......... Mr. Green

There is nothing wrong with this picture. Look at the nut and look at the cut along the Treble Side of the Fretboard: This Instrument is designed for Fretted String Style Playing, NOT for Tone Bar Playing! Kind of Cool, actually!

Maybe this should be in (Attempts At) Humor? Have a Good One! Cool

Ok, I found it in a short video on YouTube.
Everything is on YouTube I guess.

I confess to owning one just like this. I removed the six bridge pieces, twelve height adjusting screws, six length adjusting screws and springs. I then inserted a Rickenbacker bakelite bridge It has now become my favorite six stringer.

I think what's really wrong with the picture is the leopard print. Whoa!

I owned one just like it, added a raised nut, and simple angle Iron bridge. It sounded pretty good, stayed in tune, but it was crazy heavy and hurt to play on my lap for any length of time.

Sold it and now I wished I hadn't because I use a steel guitar stand now.

Yes, the frets are to be used, and thus the bridge is compensated.

And hence my prior comment. Was not intended as a joke about blind guitarists.

I never thought you were being insensitive, really it was comment with a lot of insight ( no pun intended) into the way lap guitars are played - most with a raised nut and a steel, others with frets and played by guys like Healy and Thumbs Carlisle.
