At first glance, this diminutive lap steel will impress you with its beautiful mellowed green Mother of Toilet Seat finish. But as soon as you plug it in, prepare to be wowed. The headstock is branded “Lockola,” but fire this instrument up through an overdriven tube amp, and you’ll swears it says “Rockola.” One chip atop the headstock, else very clean. If you’ve listened to David Lindley’s lap steel lines on Jackson Browne’s classic ’70s albums, that should give you an idea of the kinds of scorched tones this instrument is capable of producing (with enough practice). Lockola was a music school in downtown Salt Lake City that evidently sold store-branded instruments, but this example bears every evidence of having started life in the Magnatone factory. Ships in original chipboard case. $400
