One thought on “1943 Tri State Lap Steel Repair & Restoration!”

  1. I recently purchased a 1940’s Tri State lap steel which appears to be identical to the one you restored on your you tube video.
    It is solid and the electrics work but , of course, in preparing to put on a new set of strings I discovered that the plastic tuning head buttons were very weak and crumbly. I have looked everywhere on line , that I know to look, to find a “Vintage” style replacement without success.
    Any advice?
    Thank you,
    Ron Short
