2019 Asher Ben Harper Signature Model Lap Steel - Quilted Maple Top with Blue Stain


This Custom color Ben Harper came out so nice! Both Ben and I love the ocean so wanted to celebrate that on the guitar

"I'm as excited about having this guitar in the world as much as my music really. It's that amazing of an electric guitar." - Ben Harper

This Signature Model 6-string lap steel guitar was created for Ben Harper by Bill Asher to simultaneously capture the classic tones of the revered '59 Les Paul guitar with the feel and vibe of a Weissenborn. Asher guitars are widely known for their incredible sustain, versatile tone, and uncompromising craftsmanship. 

Asher's modern design creates tremendous playability and increased tone options for a more creative and musical experience. This model is hand-built using the finest tone woods and hardware available. Truly a unique hybrid, the Ben Harper Signature Model may be one of the most exciting lap steels ever built.
