Following the musical trends of the time Gibson proposed also lap steel guitars. The upper price model EH-150, with EH for Electric Hawaiian, was commercialised at the same time as the ES-150.
In 1936 a lower budget Lap Steel guitar was introduced with the EH-100 LapSteel. As with the other guitars of that period the end number indicated the retail cost of the guitar; in this case $100. This all maple hollow guitar shaped body had a ES-100 type blade pickup with white rectangular housing and was sold with a matching amplifier Gibson E-100.
Two distinct models existed: 6 and 7 string instruments.
