As you can tell from the title, I know what brand it is and that it is a lap steel guitar. I also looked up some stuff and have it Tuned A C E G C E.
I got it from my cousin. His dad had a friend pass away, and the friend left him everything. He brought this and a trumpet home and let me have them. I guess I'm basically asking what is the value, and for some good resources so I can learn how to play it.

As you can see it's still in really good shape. It sounds amazing too. It's really rich and loud.

It also came with some ancient case that you open from the back.

The fretboard is numbered as well. I've seen some like this through my research.

Here are some more pictures.

I love the open headstock.

Here you can see the rounded back and some of the square neck.

The Trumpet. It's a yamaha YTR 2320 student model. It's a little beat up and the finish isn't that great. It also seems like you have to blow way too hard to make a sound though.
