This link goes to a steel made from a barbeque grill. This guy musta been jamming so long that all the food was gone before he got to eat, so he took care it wouldn't happen again!

Here is a very interesting steel guitar that I was introduced to at Keola Beamers Aloha Music Camp last summer. http://www.harmosmusic.com/models/hawaiian.htm

Yeah. Very interesting, indeed. I recall some talk about it here sometime back. Definitely space age. A truss can either amplify or damp vibrations, so ... oh, hell, I don't know. With a pickup, maybe you don't need a body on a steel.

That's a radical design. But like Les Paul's original "Log", it doesn't need a body to amplify the sound, only the parts necesary to hold the pickups, strings and tuners.
Here's a site on making your own steel.
http://www.buildyourguitar.com/resources/lapsteel/index.htm There's something special about making music on your own homemade instrument.

Many possiblities for "hot licks". I'm surprized that I was the 1st one to say that!

I'm steamed that I didn't think of it first, thumbs - clearly, you are smokin' today.
