    My thoughts. Great workmanship, but why? It's too wide to actually be used as a steel guitar, too.

    Maybe it pops out of the center when one wants to play?

    You'd have to play it like Jeff Healey!

    I'd bet the intonation is a bit flat.

    It'd only be playable around here for a few days before becoming hopelessly buried in clutter :oops:.

    No whammy bar? A hardtail table... I think this neck shape is called 'flat I'

    I was expecting a Fender table. Fender made coffee or end tables in the shape of Strat and Precision headstocks. Here's an example. Now, everybody and his dog is flogging tables in the shape of Fender bodies.

    Of course there's this thing. Again, the question is "Why?" I guess it's because it could be done.

    Would have to strap it pretty low hung though.
