Ben Harper and his Relentless7 wingman Jason Mozersky grace the cover of the July 2009 issue of Guitar Player Magazine (out on stands now). Front and center, however, on Ben's lap is his gorgeous cherry burst Asher Ben Harper Series II lap steel. The cover story, titled "Stripped Down and Amped Up" gives an in-depth look into the evolution, inspiration, and gear that contributed to the "gnarly hooks and transcendent tones" on "White Lies For Dark Times" - Ben Harper's first album with Relentless7. He talks about his challenging career-long quest to find tone that inspires him - which he may have found with his Asher guitar/Dumble amp combination. His signature Asher is his workhorse in Relentless7, and according to GP, features some of his "best sounding and most memorable guitar playing." Also worth mentioning, Ben Harper and Relentless7 newly released 2-disc album titled, "White Lies for Dark Times," includes amazing documentary footage of the band with him ripping on his Asher lap steel. It also has the Shimmer and Shine video featuring the Asher lap steel. This is a serious rock record that has all the power and energy of his live shows.
