Weissenborn-Style Lap Steel Slide Guitar
Comfort in a time of distress
From: 2450 EUR/USD
In 2020, while the world was in lockdown, Alistair set about designing the very first Emerald Acoustic Lap Steel Slide Guitar. It was a welcome distraction and inspiration during a difficult time, and so he named it Solace. After a year of refinements, we are now delighted to launch this fabulous instrument.
Featuring a hollow body and neck chamber that runs the entire length of its carbon fiber body, the iconic Weissenborn style shape stays true to its roots, with infusions of Emerald Guitar’s own design. With a deep connection to Hawaiian music and surf culture, this versatile instrument is equally at home with the sweetest Hawaiian licks as it is with overdriven rock and southern blues. Played with a tonebar and featuring raised action, the Solace can deliver haunting slide lines or gritty blues and country licks. The carbon construction provides strength and stability between the body and neck, making it suitable for various types of open tunings commonly used by Slide, Dobro and Resonator guitarists.
