CRAIG'S POV

Joe Yanuziello's Deco Lap Steel is one of the hippest looking instruments currently in the shop. It's overflowing with awesomeness. That's no surprise, it was built by the extraordinary luthier Joe Yanuziello. Honestly, I'm not much of a lap steel player. I can do "studio lap steel," which translates into - I can play musical lap steel for 60 seconds before I start to trip over myself. I can get by, but I'm certainly not worthy of mentioning David Lindley's name while I figure out the best tuning for the next song. But seriously, this instrument is stunning, fun, and sounds like a million bucks. So dive right in, change your life and go into the summer with a mission-- to play Lindley's solos on Running on Empty. This Yanuziello Deco Lap Steel is one worthy instrument!

ABOUT YANUZIELLO INSTRUMENTS
It certainly doesn't take a genius to realize that guitar builder Joseph Yanuziello is the real deal. What's "the real deal" you say? When it comes to luthiers, it means someone who has built a meaningful full-time career over a long period of time, developed the craft/art/voodoo of instrument building to the highest level, carved out their own niche in an overcrowded sea of brand names, you know, the real deal! There is something about a Yanuziello that is both plain-and-simple and somehow luxurious at the same time. In fact, Yanuziello's background in design and wood/metal fabrication has served him well in producing what he would describe as "modern vintage instruments." His interest in many musical genres is reflected in the different electric and acoustic instruments he produces. "The challenge is to keep it fresh and new and a continuous learning experience...the players have a lot to do with this." - JY
