Lap Steel Bass

Does anyone know where I can find more info on John Paul Jones' lap steel basses (pictures, sound files, etc.)? Anything from someone who plays anything similar would be cool to.

Thanks.

I think JPJ's lap steel bass was made by Hugh Manson. Try doing a search for him in google, and you might find some info.

I'm thinking that you and Sterling could have matching steel guitars. How cool would that be?
