More information about the Junior

The Electro Hawaiian Junior lap steel just keeps getting better.  This time around Asher made some small, but pretty choice updates to make your playing experience all the better. 

  Designed in California and prototyped by master luthier Bill Asher, the Junior has a neck-through solid mahogany body with a 25" scale length and 24 fret lines. This new version has a beautiful Indian rosewood fretboard, custom Alnico 5 pickup set and upgraded Wilkinson tuners.

   Known for its solid construction and quality components, the use of lighter-weight African mahogany with its neck-through-body construction provides the optimal foundation for creating an impressive resonance and tonal range. Powered by custom wound Alnico 5 pickups, this lap steel produces a powerful tone and response with impressive depth and clarity. The wrap-around aluminum bridge with flat radius gives optimal body contact, and thus enhanced sustain.

    The Junior’s slightly wider string spacing allows for effortless playability making it a great cross-over instrument for guitar, Dobro and Weissenborn players.  Designed with 24 frets, players have easy access to the 3rd octave allowing for expansive creative and tonal range.  The USA made low-friction nut by Graphtech, upgraded tuners and a reliable padded gig bag with heavy duty zippers are other details that make the Jr. anything but inferior.

    Played by the professionals, this work-horse lap steel is available in 3 enticing colours from Eaglemusic (tobacco burst, trans cherry and Lake Placid blue).  The Junior performs up to the standards of the Pros! Professional artists including Robert Randolph, Emily Robison (Dixie Chicks), Bruce Bouton (Garth Brooks), Mike Johnson (Reba MacEntire), and many other artists and gigging musicians use the Asher Electro Hawaiian Junior to add depth and musicality to their work.

  The Jr. is suitable for any musical genre including blues, rock, folk, jazz, country, Hawaiian, etc. and also used for many applications including studio recording, live performance, large venue concerts, soundtracks, commercial work and most predominantly for pleasure at home.

“Built to my high standards for performance, road-worthy durability, the Junior is sure to impress you with its musical voice and professional feel. “   

- Bill Asher

I make my living as a working musician & writer. I shall use my Asher Electro-Hawaiian Junior for gigs and recording. I took it to a top luthier - Nick B - for an informed technical appraisal and he suggested that I shouldn't change a thing - not even a capacitor tweak!
