Pink Floyd tribute band out of Philadelphia, PA.

Billy Martin, guitarist, and I collaborated on on a lap steel design he wanted me to make. This is what we came up with. He sent me these pics from some of their performances.

A collage I put together of The Paul Knakk Band, at his debut CD release concert at The Steel Stacks at the old Bethlehem Steel. That's Geoff Black playing the lap steel I made for him.


Hi, I'm George R. Liros, and I've been making lap steels since 2011.
 
I started out by making a simple one, using a 2x4. Since then I've been coming up with my own designs, honing my skills with everyone I make.

I'm always looking for new kinds of wood to work with, different densities and thicknesses.
 
I make all my lap steels using the strings through the body, as to capture the true tone of the wood.

I only use quality components. From the electronics, to hardware, I take no short cuts. This is a labor of love for me.

If you would rather have different hardware, like pickups or tuning pegs, I can also accomodate.
If you're local, you can stop by and play one that you're interested in.

I can also put a video together if you want to listen to one if you're too far away to visit.
 
Every lap steel I make is strung up with new strings, and tested. If for some reason you're not 100% satisfied, I'm sure we could work something out for me to make it right.
