Some Valco History from Premier Guitar :
“Norman English was a lap steel player who ran a music studio in Lansing, Michigan. He had a good relationship with Valco and was able to order custom instruments directly from them. English Electronics’ Tonemaster brand offered several sought after lap steels, Res-O-Glas guitars and amps,” Ivankovich says of these Tonemasters. The lap steels have a 25-inch scale and Valco’s legendary string-through pickups. Ry Cooder’s Coodercaster guitar is based on the Valco string-through-bridge pickup and single-coil neck configuration."
