    Mötley Crüe - A Mick Mars Owned and Used Steel Lap Guitar from the "Dr. Feelgood" Tour and Album, 1989-1990. Black 'marbled-effect' body, headstock reads "Sanchez / Custom;" Mick was fond of the lap steel guitars during this time so he contacted well-known Los Angeles guitar luthier Sammy Sanchez to see if he had any -- Sanchez had just made nine of them so Mick immediately bought three. The other six are now owned by well known musicians such as Joe Walsh of The Eagles, among others. Mick played his three lap steels (including this one being offered here) throughout the two year "Dr. Feelgood" world tour as well as on a number of the studio recordings. The guitar was also featured in the well-known music video "Without You." Mick loved this guitar and eventually gave it to his longtime guitar tech of 30 years. Included is a signed COA from Mars' guitar tech as well as a nice engraved plaque to hang on the wall with the guitar.
    Guitar: 33"
