Weird "boss" Lap Steel


Recommended Posts

This was linked to from the Steelguitarforum and I thought a few people here might be interested in having a look-see:

I suspect "fake logo," never having heard of Boss doing something like this. Plus, they'd probably use those typical Boss knobs. :D However, regardless of branding, this IS an intriguing instrument. And have a look at that bridge-- definitely some kind of retuning set-up, but what? Just a one-flip per string (like a slightly crippled Hipshot Trilogy) or do you dig in there for realtime pedal-steel-like bends? It would be an awkward "dig" to make, but it might have been a concept piece that either succeeded or failed (who knows?).

If anyone speaks German and cares to translate some of that, any insight would be appreciated. :D
