1960 Fender "Champ" Lapsteel Desert Sand - Sold




 The Baby Brother of the 1956 example we have! So I will just modify the rundown, as they are so similar! Apart from Amplification and radio Repairs, these Steel guitars are what started it all for Leo Fender and the team he would eventually assemble, to set the guitar world on fire! He was a big fan of the Musicians from the South who played Western Swing and what would become known as country music. They eventually offered a full range of Steel Guitars which became a very popular part of the Fender Catalogue. The Pickups in these are basically what was used in the Bridge of a Telecaster and you can hear that as soon as you plug it in. Ideal for classic Hawaiian steel guitar as well, we have 2 in stock, as well as the 1957 "Dual Eight" Twin Neck version, you will see listed here. Like the Guitars of the day, this one (#8019) has a nice yellow lined Brown Tolex Case, which has kept it in great condition...Check it out, might make for a great alternative to just Guitar, could even be a total career change!
