Guitars Currently For Sale

Please note: All of the guitars fully described and pictured below have been at a minimum; thoroughly gone over, lubricated and setup for years of dependable, smooth playing. Because all are set up with my standard Emmons copedent, I would not think twice about playing any of them myself on the bandstand. If there were any issues found, they were resolved and of course any worn parts have been replaced. As I’ve mentioned below, I’ll be happy to switch any guitars to Day style, (or your own copedent) at no extra charge (as long as no additional parts are required).

2000 blue mica ZumSteel all-pull D-10 8×8

I recently acquired this beautiful ZumSteel guitar that’s in absolutely pristine condition. It is a newer model with the very latest features and design improvements. The builder, Bruce Zumsteg is now mostly retired from building guitars. As a result, they are climbing in value and becoming very hard to find. Whether you are a seasoned player or not, this is your opportunity to own one of the very finest pedal steel guitars made.

Some of the features include Split-Tuning, Lowering Compensators and Raise Assist Springs, which provide very easy playing action along with shorter throws than most other all-pull guitars.

I’ll now let the photos do the talking.

This guitar has a very standard Emmons set up; 8×8 with E’s on the left but I’ll be happy to switch it to Day style, (or your own copedent) at no extra charge (as long as no additional parts are required). Bruce is still providing parts, so getting anything that would be required for your setup won’t be a problem for me. The True Tone single coil pickups are wound to about 17.5K ohms. The guitar plays just great, has great tone and wonderful sustain that ZumSteel guitars are known for! Included is a leg/pedal rod bag and the original hard case in very nice condition.

$5500.00 plus shipping. PayPal (add 3%) or cashier’s check accepted.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions.

Mid 70’s black mica Emmons “Black Rock” model push-pull S-10 3×4 (Sold!)

This Emmons guitar S/N 127 BR has just been completely restored. I feel it was probably built around 1975 and originally had only two right knee levers.  I added the two matching black anodized left knee levers during the restoration. The Black Rock model, which included a pro style cabinet and end plates, was a big step above their GS-10 student model.  All aluminum brightwork, was professionally polished, and the fret board is a new Emmons Factory replacement. The black lacquered maple plank sandwiched under the fret board was installed by the Emmons factory (also unlike the GS-10 student model). The Kluson tuning keys are in great condition and the original legs are standard height.

This guitar has a very standard Emmons set up; 3×4 with E’s on the left but I’ll be happy to switch it to Day style, (or your own copedent) at no extra charge (as long as no additional parts are required). Emmons single coil pickup with both volume and tone control. The guitar plays just great, has that very distinctive Emmons push-pull bell-like tone and of course, wonderful sustain! Included is a new D2F leg/pedal rod bag and the original Wade Thomas hard case in nice condition.

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: October 6, 2019

Here is an idea of some of the guitar projects I currently have in stock that I’m going to be working on soon.

I’ve recently acquired and plan to fully restore a  gloss rosewood mica 1978 Emmons D-10 push-pull guitar. This guitar will be of the same high quality as any of the previous Emmons push-pull guitars I’ve restored in the past, some of which some are featured on this site.

I’ve recently acquired a gloss red mica 1985 Zumsteel U-12 8×5 and plan to completely restore it. Since there are many “Universal” copedents, I’ll probably hold off on finishing the final rodding until it’s sold. This way I can set it up to suit the new owner’s requirements. Here are a few preliminary photos of this guitar in it’s present condition.
