Jupiter Creek Music Firebird Lap Steel - 2009
Jupiter Creek Music was a one-man operation based in South Australia that made cool ukes, lap steels and baritone guitars. This little gem is loosely based on a Gibson Firebird body, but with a Tele slant to it. Pickup has a bit of grunt to it and it sits nicely in the lap like it should. Whilst I was researching this little lap steel I found out that Rob Dick, who made them and was Jupiter Creek Music, sadly passed away in October 2012. Our condolences go out to Rob’s family and friends and I’m sure he is still being missed and will be missed for years to come. It’s really nice to know that he will still be alive in his instruments that are circulating around the globe.
