We recently received these plans from “Hubcap John” Hayward which were originally featured in Practical Wireless Magazine in London in 1965.  The plans feature a lap steel guitar with full schematics.  They were scanned from the original and sent in eight different parts.  We did our best to match them up into one complete PDF.
