It took me ten years to buy this reso from Ivan. My late wife and I would go out and visit Ivan every summer and every year I would do my best to talk him out of it but to no avail.I bought this in 2007. It was being built for Mike Auldridge but decided what we all know as the Auldridge model Black with hearts and flowers. Ivan had built this with his four piece soundwell but had the idea for the mid body baffle and sound post so this was the fist one built. He removed the sound well and installed the mid body baffle and sound post and it is still being used today. This reso was also taken on tour by Vince Gill for several shows when he was deciding what reso he wanted Ivan to build him. Though the reso has no label inside it is number 27 and I have a letter from Ivan stating what I have said above. I will make a copy of the letter and include it with the reso.

Crystal Forest Walnut Lap Steel - Reduced Price!

Since I couldn't bring myself to part with my Lap King Rodeo, unfortunately, something else has to take it's place. I am putting my custom Crystal Forest walnut lap steel up for sale. I received this guitar a little while ago and am still very impressed with it. It was built by Terry Majewski of Crystal Forest Instruments. He is probably best know for his "pancake" mandolins, but has started to branch out into custom acoustic guitars and F-5 style mandolins that seem quite nice. He hasn't built many lap steels, but the ones he has produced all seem to be top-notch, and this one is no exception. It is made out of a slab of black walnut that Terry had been saving for a lap steel of his own, but offered it up. It has some really nice figure in it. I had Terry use an ebony peghead overlay with his Crystal Forest logo and tree, as well as an ebony fretboard that has some really attractive stripes running through it.
