i used proper C tuning lap steel strings for my 8 stringer matte, bit pricey but only intended to make one so i got them from germany.

as for string spacing, i just went for a uniform gap between the strings/

good luck with the build!

strings depend on tuning. I prefer 25.5 for the scale but most electric lap steels are more like 23"

I call this the ghettoborn. it's built like a danelectro  with masonite top and bottom and a pine frame.
