    I have one too. I bought a hard plastic case for gun with "i don't know the word in english" sort of synthetic foam inside. It's perfect. Hope it helps.

    I have two H1 lap steels and I love 'em both. I'm looking for a soap bar style pickup for one of my lap steels because the one I have doesn't seem to track all of the strings equally.
    Also looking for the "Harmony" decal for same axe.
    Thanks for reading.

    I recently bought one of these on eBay. I was disappointed with the unexpectedly thin sound, but decided that this was due to the large gap between the pickup and the strings. I temporarily shimmed up the pickup with two thicknesses of corrugated cardboard as a trial, and the sound was transformed - much deeper and louder, with tons of bass if you want it. This is the same pickup as used on the early Stratotones, so it should be OK! I'll customise a plastic mount to replace the cardboard. Otherwise, it's a nice playable budget lapper. As regards a case, a generic lapsteel gigbag is available at modest price - do a search on eBay.

    I'm a keyboard and guitar player. I have a Silhouette and a Rocket, but my dad had one of these bronze lapsteels. I think his came from Aldens , maybe Sears or Wards but it was definately a Harmony. I am now 66 years old and my Dad passed away years ago. We did a lot of playing together, mostly gospel music. Thanks for the memories!

    I purcahsed this steel guitar at an Antique Store for $63.00 with the original box. I had to bolt the bridge down and put an extension nut on it; but after that, wow, the DeArmond pickup is incredible. It just looks great, like The Jetsons would play it.
