Artist MSL110 Lap steel 6 String

Firstly, delivery was right on cue. Thanks for the accurate ETA. The product itself was very well packaged, contained all the bits it was supposed to, and was in good working condition straight out of the box. It is surprisingly well built, was accurately tuned to C6 (!), and sounds just like I anticipated. Overall, a good product, excellent value for money, and I would be well happy to deal with this company again.

I bought two Artist MSL110 6 string lap steels and they were delivered within two days of making the payment. I tuned them to the tunings I wanted, C6 and E7, and started playing on them right away. About the only thing I would change, would be to have the strings a littler higher than they are. But that's not a showstopper. The bar is heavier than the one I first got started with, a fair few years ago, and lighter than the one I'd previously used on both a pedal steel and a lap steel. So it's a fairly good fit for a lap steel. I'm currently not using the legs, but that could change if I get into a band. All in all, I think it a good instrument, whether as a beginner's, a professional's, or as a second instrument.

6 String Lap Steel

By: on 7 June 2023
Early days for me ,probably most other purchasers as well.First few weeks with it.For it's price,I think it is great.Using strings supplied,I think probably 10-46,stays in tune really well so far.,will fit heavier strings when I figure out what is most suitable. Weakest thing is the nut,but it will do until I figure out how to maybe fit something over the top of it. Tone control doesn't do much.Good idea with split coil,sounds OK with small amp,works super well with vst plugins,which is what is mainly used in my case.So it's super nice sounding through various synth amps.Pretty good intonation for my untrained ears.No buzzes,justsounds great.,a real nice sound.Tone bar is heavy,could do with maybe better,more ergonomic tone bar,but is still great for this price.Excellent bags,legs work fine.Had seen one returned for having ill fitting legs,but this one is fine.Good having adjustable tripod legs ,as you can slope forward to the player,bit easier to see what you are doing.Really looking forward to coming to grips with this new (for me),instrument.Well done artist guitars,I have never had a bad product from these guys.

MSL110 Lap Steel

By: on 7 March 2022
With a history of buying musical instruments simply because I really need just one more, then fizzling out after a week or two and leaving them sitting somewhere deep in my wardrobe to be lost for a year or two, I overruled my wife's reminder about how many guitars I've got and ordered the above lapsteel. I've always loved Santo and Johnnys Sleepwalk { you have to be getting on to know who I'm referring to. Give them a try.} and fancied trying to learn at least that one song. I was expecting a Lapsteel to be quite expensive so was pleasantly surprised when I found Artist guitars had one at a very reasonable price. Free shipping as well was a real bonus. Shipped and received in very quick time. Artist guitars are great to deal with. Havn't quite mastered the lapsteel yet but working on it. I would say if you are keen to have a go at playing one and not spending a fortune doing it this is the one for you.. I'm not an expert but looks and sounds like the real deal to me. I'm Really happy with this guitar and would recommend it's worth a shot as a start out learner instrument without breaking the bank. Good luck.

The Artist MSL110 Lap steel 6 String Metallic Black Is a very good beginner instrument, the tuning nobs are relatively cheap feeling but they work fine, over all this is a great instrument.

This is my first lap steel guitar and so far very impressed, the build quality looks excellent for the price and the sound/tone is pretty good (even though my playing isn't)

Great starter instrument

By: on 8 October 2021
I bought my MSL110 about 18 months ago. I was very impressed with Artist Guitars service and delivery, and I was extremly impressed with the lap steel, for it's price. It plays well, looks good, and sounds good; not a lot not to like! Never used the legs, prefering to use it on my "lap". I've since added an expensive custom made eight string lap steel to my collection, but I'll still keep the Artist . My 5 star review does take into account the price of the MSL110.

As usual the item was posted immediately, I think it took 3 or 4 working days to arrive and it was very well packed and protected. The instrument itself is very nice, the only blemish I could see was a little bit of gold paint missing from a couple of frets but that is not worth bothering about and doesn't affect performance of the instrument. For the price I think it is a great starter instrument and sounds great. I would have spent that money in one afternoon at the pub but instead I am having hours of fun on this little lap steel. Would recommend it to anyone considering getting one.

I learnt to play one 50 years ago but sold it to buy other gigging gear. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this unit and as always the delivery was right on at a busy time of year. The intonation is ok and a quick retune to A6 posed no issues. Seems to hold its tuning pretty well. The pick-up & tone ranges are ok as well. Would have liked a contoured slide bar but the one supplied seems good quality. All in all a great company to deal with.Thanks

A great entry level lap steel for the inexperience or beginner. With all you need to get started straight out of the box, this is a good buy. Well priced. A surprisingly good finish also. Very impressed. For the money, it’s value.

Great Lap Steel Sound from a reasonably priced ins

have played guitar for many years and always wanted to try a Lap Steel. I read many reviews on Lap Steel guitars and settled for this model, as a beginner I am more than satisfied with the tone and play ability of the instrument. I chose to change the strings to 13-56 and I found that suited me better. Great Instrument.

I am extremely happy with the steel guitar I recently purchased. I have only just taken it up again after nearly fifty years and it is a real pleasure to have an instrument with such a nice tone even though I am learning from a beginners standpoint as the new tunings and methods are very different from my previous experiences. i was surprised at the apparent high quality at such a reasonable cost.

I have used it sparingly so far as I am having huge fun with my Gembox II pedal, but have played it and it is nice and compact and easy to play the only problem is which tuning to use, I like the adjustable legs, I have no real issue with this product

Great Little Lap Steel

By: on 6 August 2017
After 50 plus years of playing guitar I couldn't resist the price and the chance to have a go on lap steel. Huge fun trying different tunings. Quality of the MSL110 is good enough to go on stage with, once I get my chops up.
