A lap steel is not a resonator, but this seems like the best group to ask this question. Some of you may own lap steels. I'm wanting to build an 8 string and am looking for info on string spacing. On my 6 strings I use 11mm spacing between strings at the bridge. If you have one of these creatures, I would appreciate 8 string measurements, outside to outside, at the nut and bridge. Some of these converge at the nut and some are parallel. If you have a players opinion on that, I'd appreciate that too. Thanks, Bob

Lovely guitar, Bob. I love the flame carried thru to the fretboard. Can't help with the 8 string but when you do get an answer I'll file it away for the possibility that I might make one.
