I just finished building this aluminum 8 string Frypan lap steel. 23" scale. Black Walnut fingerboard with brass fret lines and aluminum dots. Custom made pickup (by me) 12K resistance.

How do you have those sound clips amped Wayne, Almost sounds acoustic. Is that what it sounds like unplugged?

I'm using a 25 watt Squire amp, super clean, volume not so high, and in a small very dead sounding room, and a hand held voice recorder.

It doesn't sound like an acoustic, to me, when playing it.

Thank you for your feedback. I need it not only on the guitars I build but also the recordings. I am not a performer.

I removed the second recording. Playing is more along lines of acoustic, I suppose.

( If anyone else wants to chime in on the sound, feel free. )
