This one's kinda tough to let go, but since i haven't played lap steel on a gig for quite some time, here goes it. If you're a working guitar player who plays or wants to play lap steel, then you should definately not pass this up! This is a vintage Supro with rare telescoping legs. It must have been a deluxe model. You can play it on your lap, or put the legs on and pull up a chair, or be the coolest lap steeler in town and extend the legs on stage up to 4 feet. You can be playing guitar on stage, walk over to the supro and play some slide on it without bending over while you're still wearing your regular guitar! And it sounds great! I've seen this pickup on some other supro's and national's and have heard it referred to as the 'David Lindley pickup' It's in overall good condition with a couple of small dings, some faded pinstriping on the control plate, and it originally had a plastic cover over the pickup. I think people take the covers off because it's easier to play and then forget where they put them, as most vintage lapsteels today do not have the covers or didn't come with one. The pickup itself has a metal cover over the strings that is in perfect position to rest your hand on to play it. You snooze, you lose. Good Luck!
