Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

Purchased as a "123 Weekly Deal" but it's well worth the original price, now that I have one! Consider getting a tone bar, rather than a glass slide, but they also work. The legs are wonky, but with patience and care go on firmly and support the guitar very well (I'm 6'8" and these legs go plenty high enough for mine.) My first "Rogue" product, and I am impressed!

lap steel with great tele-style tone

By Bradley Chilton

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

This lap steel deserves the 10-rating for it's excellent quality-to-value-pricing. It is a very-good lap steel, with a great pickup, extra details like a fretboard with real frets, stable metal tuners, and chrome-metal volume & tone knobs just where I need them as a finger-picker. Those who strum their lap steel may find these volume and tone knobs in the way. Of course, just about everything gets in the way of a passionate strummer - the the lap steel itself! Good open design around the bridge and pickup for pickers who mute strings with their right palm and pick over the pickup. Love the blue metalflake paint and thick poly-overcoat - reminds me of a blue metalflake '69 Carmaro I had. On the PRO: great tele-style tone, with clear streaming-highs, lots of output, solid body, and nice vintage looks. Reminds me of an old Fender lap steel mom had. On the CON: the plastic nut cuts the sound a wee bit (easily replaced with a metal nut), the 3-legs are a bit wobbly (don't put the weight on), and there's no felt glued underneath to keep it from sliding down when its on your lap (so glue it on yourself). OVERALL: great quality-vinty-sound for the bucks. No WHINING from this happy lap steel player!

Wonderful starter instrument.

By Patrick thomas

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

I have been playing guitar for a long time, but decided I wanted to expand my available sonic palette. The ea-3 is a great entry level lap steel. I am sure that you could get a higher quality instrument, but for the money this instrument is wonderful. It stays in tune and the sound is clean and bright without being shrill.
The legs it comes with fit snuggly and support the instrument really well (it is a really light instrument). The carrying case is made well and houses things securely.

Now, all I have to do is learn how to play it well.

Good deal!

By Steve Gaither

from Ashalnd, AL

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

This is an excellent sounding and playing guitar for the money. Not as much tone flexibility as a guitar with an additional bridge pickup, but the cost of a pickup alone is more than the total cost of this guitar, so who is complaining? The legs provide a very narrow footprint (about 8" apart) which could tip over easily and fall if bumped. I would never trust the stand on a stage with a band, but again, without any legs it is still a good deal. I am considering buying a 2nd or 3rd tor alternate tunings.

fun instrument

By patrick-GjSVL

from chicago, il

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

i'm having a great time learning how to play this thing. the tuners are going to take some getting used to {they seem to be a little inconsistemnt in their movement}. the finish looks really nice, i was worried that it might be too flashy but it is just the right amount of sublte sparkliness. the stand for it is really nice, but doesn't seem like it would take much in the way of abuse. all in all, a really great deal, especially for beginners like me.

try something new for the money you can't go wrong.

By Michael Franks

from Anderson, SC

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

O.K. this is my first lap steel. First one I've ever played actualy But I've been playing guitar for 25 years. I can't judge against other lap steels but it seems to be made well, stays in tune, and sounds good what else could I ask for, I also own a Rouge mandolin and my father-in-law owns an acoustic both of which are also great. For the money you can't go wrong.

Stays in tune! Sounds "good" Worth twice the price!

By studio1087

from Milwaukee WI

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

I've played guitar for 35 years, wanted an entry level lap steel for learning and fun. The Rogue EA-3 stays in tune and is solid. The pickup is like a Squier pickup and sounds "good". I am delighted with this purchase. The legs are solid...the bag is great. The lap plays intune with itself. I tuned to open E for starters so that it would be simple for a guitar player. I bought better strings but have not put them on yet as the strings that came on the Rogue are really pretty good.

Reasonable value

By N D Wood

from Grand Rapids MI

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

This is a good instrument for the money. The tuners are very cheap and sloppy, otherwise the components seem to be in line with the price. I play pedal steel and find on this guitar, the strings are lower (closer to the neck) than on my pedal steel, so my picks hit the neck as I play. It is only a 21" scale, so accurate bar placement is critical for good intonation and it doesn't have the sustain a longer scale would allow. It is not a pro's instrument, but it is inexpensive, fun to play, sounds good through a steel guitar amp, and it looks cool. I have several Rogue products and have found them all good value for what I paid.

Starter instrument but sounds clean

By Tennessee

from Cleveland, TN

Comments about Rogue EA-3 Lap Steel Guitar with Stand and Gig Bag:

Originally bought this for my wife who didn't want to go through the problems of growing hard fingertips with a traditional guitar. Good news is it stays in tune and has a nice, clean sound with good sustain. Bad news is that when you do have to tune it, the tuners are by far the worst I have ever seen. Plan on at least 1/8 of a turn of slop each direction everytime. Finish is good, pickup needed to be raised. Don't forget to buy a slide! Overall, a good starter instrument, but also, you will find it hard to locate training books for this, most have moved on to pedal steel and 10 string units. Still, a lot of fun to play. Fun to run it through an amp on high distortion or heavy reverb!
