"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

The Ben Harper Signature Model lap steel guitar simultaneously captures the classic vibe and tone of the revered '59 Less Paul guitar with the feel and sustain of a vintage Weissenborn lap steel.

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.
