Lap steel guitar
Semie Moseley, 1935-1992
Jonas Ridge, North Carolina, 1984

   When country singer Barbara Mandrel was injured in a car accident in 1984, her friend Semie Mosely wanted to do something more than send flowers during her 18-month convalescence. He made her this lap steel in the form of a functional crutch and custom fit it to Mandrel's height.
