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).
1974 satin rosewood Emmons push-pull D-10 8×5
I’ve just finished up reworking this late 1974 Emmons guitar S/N 1975 D. It was recently acquired from one of my customers who decided to let it go, rather than have me rework it for him. It’s now correct as it can be, right down to the proper slotted wood screws holding the brackets to the cabinet. The aluminum brightwork was hand polished, necks jeweled, etc. and the fret boards are new Emmons Factory replacements. The Gotoh replacement tuning keys are in great condition. Original legs are standard height. As some of you know, the fatback guitars from this era are some of the best sounding ones and this is no exception! It has that distinctive Emmons push-pull bell-like tone, wonderful sustain and it plays like a dream.
This guitar has a very standard Emmons set up; 8×5 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). The Emmons single coil pickups are wound to about 18K ohms. Includes a nice leg/pedal rod bag and a like new Wade Thomas hard case.

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: December 24, 2017
Here is an idea of some of the guitar projects I currently have in stock that I’m going to be working on soon. This coming year I plan to restore a black mica 1981 Emmons D-10 push-pull guitar (pictured below in its present condition) and one 1993 Emmons satin walnut mica D-10 LeGrande II all-pull guitar.
In addition; I also plan to build one Emmons gloss black mica D-10 push-pull guitar, one Emmons gloss black mica S-10 Emmons push-pull guitar and one red lacquer S-10 Emmons push-pull guitar.
