I don't play lap steel at all, but this appeals to me more than the Moog Guitar for some reason:

Having bought a Moog E1 I would not go near any Moog guitar based equipment again!

Those Moog pickups are crap to be honest, very noisy, very hissy, very distorted, bad shielding for EM and a pretty nasty general tone.

Quel dommage! Sorry to hear that! Good luck selling your Moog guitar then.

I suppose a lap steel with Sustainiac Model C might provide a more satisfying experience. http://www.sustainiac.com/model-c.htm

The midi board went wrong causing terrible hum on the piezo so it got sent off for mending (9 weeks it took), I asked them to check the noisy pickups and they said they were normal.

I might sell it actually, I'm not using it and when I do only through the VG99 for a virtual guitar and then you lose the filtering but it does sound 100 times better!

There has been a fair few complaints about the pickups on the moog forum, it basically means you cannot really use it as a general guitar, if the vo power is on then it's great as the noise is hidden, as a normal guitar it stinks.

I'd like to clarify that this guitar technology is different from the one that I've been discussing from time to time. I think it was in chat someone mentioned it as competition. They are different for whatever that is worth.
