In 1935, in response to the first electric lapsteels, Rickenbacker's frying pans, Epiphone introduced the Electar line, which included electrified lapsteels and flamenco guitars as well as amplifiers. Especially the Century Lap Steel, developed and designed in 1939 by Epiphone salesman Herb Sunshine, quickly became very popular, so it's not surprising that Epiphone is going back to its history with this instrument.

Both the body and the neck are made of one piece of mahogany, which has a positive effect on the sound behaviour in terms of resonance and sustain. To prevent the instrument from slipping on the back, a rubber coating is attached to the back of the body. A powerful Epiphone 500B “Blade”-humbucker sets the tone of the Electar Century Lap Steel in scene, it can be shaped by means of a volume control and a treble shutter. The plexiglass fingerboard with Art Déco inlays is impressive and a suitable gig bag is included for safe transport.
