Electrified: The Art of the Contemporary Electric Guitars
Book by Robert Shaw
November 2011

With its classic flame-maple top, this collaboration between luthier Bill Asher and lap slide master Ben Harper combines the look and tone of a ’59 Les Paul, the unique vibe of a vintage Weissenborn acoustic Hawaiian guitar, and the feel and sustain of Asher’s own highly regarded lap steels. Its solid African mahogany neck runs through a mahogany body with cylindrical tone chambers; a pair of Seymour Duncam ’59-style humbuckers completes the picture.
