Venthony Help: Adapting guitar to use as 'Lap top'. (17) RE: Help: Adapting guitar to use as 'Lap top'. 21 Aug 02

In my experience -- which is hardly comprehensive -- none of the retrofit stuff works. You will always buzz, and you will always be slightly out of tune.

Buy a real high-nut resophonic. Regal makes a nice one for around $400 (You can get a used one for less). Stay away from Johnson, etc.

Then have a GOOD luthier (ever so gently) adjust the bridge and set the intonation.

Finally, invest in a really GOOD bar, and keep it wrapped in cotton cloth inside the little plastic case.

Best o luck, Tony
