Steve, from what I gathered regarding the purpose of the new Asher (less feedback at high volumes and more rugged construction) I would guess that the neck has graphite rods in it. Powdered graphite is an interesting idea, but since I would want my lap steel to ring out, I would stay away from any intentional deadening.
Also, I'd like to find out how those Tom Anderson pickups (they look an awful lot like the Sunrise p/u on the Weissenborn) measure up. You're right, though - the guitar on BTS is pretty badass. Do a web search for "Brad's Page Of Steel" for more lap steel info. Sorry I don't have the URL handy...
