Eddie Bush was most famous during the late '20s and '30s as part of the Biltmore Hotel Trio, named after the prestigious Los Angeles hotel where they performed for years. By 1934 Eddie had switched from a National Tri-Cone acoustic to electric lap steel. He was still performing into the 1960s and was still enough of a recognized Hawaiian guitar star to have an endorsement deal with Magnatone. Note the cool Kluson Deluxe tuners with clear keystone-shape buttons, and while the original chipboard case has seen better days it's definitely worth keeping. If you have specific questions about this rare lap steel call Gryphon Tuesday-Saturday and ask for Michael Simmons.
