Exclusive to Texas Guitar Ranch, these lap steels have tiny blemishes that are noticeable only when you are looking for them. The string holder grommets are slightly uneven, but these play great and sound even better.

The Lap Steel for Guitarists
The 1466BW Jet Airliner Lap Steel is an updated reissue of the Supro electric lap steel guitar that was manufactured in the early 1960s. The Jet Airliner’s vintage-correct body shape and Art Deco aesthetics are enhanced with an intonation-friendly, string-through-body hardtail bridge and a silver foil version of the original Supro “Clear-tone” pickup.

Silver Foil Pickup
The unique Silver Foil pickup found in the Supro Jet Airliner is a faithful reproduction of the original “Clear-tone” unit developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. This has a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low noise for a single-coil design.

The humbucker-sized version of the Supro Silver Foil pickup used in the Jet Airliner is slightly overwound and located right at the harmonic “sweet spot.”
