We have a very limited quantity of this available now - tobacco burst only
The best electric lap steel on the market just got better. Asher Guitar’s Electro Hawaiian Junior 6-string lap steel got a complete overhaul and although the look is generally the same, the telling is in the details.
The Junior’s slightly wider string spacing allows for effortless playability making it a great cross-over instrument for guitar, Dobro and Weissenborn players. The 2019 version also now has 24 frets (expanded from 22), which allows easy access to the 3rd octave.
A newly designed aluminum wrap-around bridge with flat radius has been added for improved body contact, string spacing and sustain. Other upgrades include better performing machine heads, USA low-friction nut by Graphtech and a reliable padded gig bag with heavy duty zippers.
This work-horse lap steel now comes in 5 enticing colors (tobacco burst, trans cherry, antique white, lake placid blue and a limited edition Gold Top).
Used By: Robert Randolph, Emily Robison (Dixie Chicks), Bruce Bouton (Garth Brooks), Mike Johnson (Reba MacEntire), and many other pro and gigging musicians use the Asher Electro Hawaiian Junior to add depth and musicality to their work.
The 2019 Jr. now has a Granadillo fretboard which is CITIES compliant, so this lap steel can safely travel across international borders.
The Jr. is suitable for any musical genre including blues, rock, folk, jazz, country, Hawaiian, etc.
Be sure to check out all the upgrades for the Electro Hawaiian® Junior only available from Asher Guitars, such as our HipShot palm bender, fully adjustable stand, electronic upgrade kit, custom Belly Bar and hard shell case!
