Ronnie Bennett 6-String Lap Steel Guitar with Case

Ronnie Bennett was based on the Wirral in the Northwest of England for many years, but has relocated to near Inverness, Scotland recently.


Ronny Bennett is well known in the steel-guitar world both as a player and maker of over fifty years experience.

From his workshop near Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands, he still produces pedal steel and lap steel guitars which exhibit an incredibly high degree of engineering quality, much of the hardware being individually machined to fit the purpose.
