Sho-Bud "Bootleg" Frypan 7-String Lap Steel
Very cool, fully functional lap steel and a piece of Sho-Bud history.
Following a limited run of frypan lap steels a few "bootleg" bodies made their way out into the world. It looks like anything after serial # A099 is a bootleg, this instrument is # A122. This is further confirmed from the non-original hardware (nut, bridge, knobs, fingerboard, jack, tuners and pickup). Additionally It is missing the back plate and the previous owner engraved "Sho Bud" into the headstock. Nonetheless a great sounding steel with lots of mojo! Sold with a hardshell case.
