Publisher/Studio:Kalamazoo, MI: Gibson Inc.
The Skylark lap-steel guitar was introduced in 1956. It is made out of the same African limba wood, but is not as unusually shaped, as Gibson's Spanish-style Flying V and Explorer models. Designed to be a budget model, the Skylark became Gibson's most successful lap-steel of the late 1950s and 1960s.
