LAP STEEL REDEFINED
GOOD NEWS!! We have acquired a new source for the epoxy impregnated birch needed to resume production of the The MSA SuperSlide.
Coming this Summer!
The new MSA SuperSlide SUPER SERIES
WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING ORDERS FOR THE ALL NEW MSA SUPER SERIES!
I've been playing lap steel since 1978, mainly Hawaiian style. My lap steel of choice is the Rickenbacher frypan or Bakelite 7-string model. I've tried other makes, Fender, Gibson, Magnatone, Canopus, Excel, etc., but always went back to Rickenbacher. I've never considered any other lap steel other than my frypan or bakelite to be my main instrument of choice. That is until I tried the MSA SUPERSLIDE!!
A close friend of mine Kris Oka let me try his SUPERSLIDE and I was completely blown away!! I took to it like a duck to water so to speak. It was like an old friend. I played it so effortlessly!! Great tone, easy to do harmonics, and silky smooth!! It's THE closest feel to a Rickenbacher!! And the placement of the pickup is what I've been telling lap steel builders all along which is, to place the pickup next to the back bridge because it's where the sweetness is!! The farther the pickup is from the back bridge gives it an ugly midrange tone that isn't sweet at all. A very prominent steel guitarist friend of mine and one of my early inspirations Greg Sardinha just purchased a MSA SUPERSLIDE on the Steel Guitar Forum and his reaction was the same as mine!! And it's now his main instrument of choice!! Someone finally got it right!! And now my vintage Rickenbacher can stay safe at home!! Lol!! It will surely be my main lap Steel for performing and recording!! The one key word that Greg and I used to describe the SUPERSLIDE is "SILKY".
And it couldn't have come at a more perfect time because, I just retired after 50 years of working!!! A million thanks to Kyle Bennett of MSA and my good buddy Kris Oka!!
Sincerely, Bobby Ingano
