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).
“New” mid 70’s style black mica Emmons push-pull S-10 3×5 (SOLD)
I just finished building this guitar using various new and used parts that I’ve accumulated over the years. This is not a restoration but is virtually like a new Emmons guitar! All aluminum brightwork, including the five knee lever handles were professionally polished, neck jeweled , etc. and the fret board is a new Emmons Factory replacement. The Gotoh keys are new and the legs are standard height.
This guitar has a very standard Emmons set up; 3×5 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 pickup is wound to about 18K ohms. The guitar plays great, has that distinctive Emmons push-pull bell-like tone and wonderful sustain! Included is a nice leg/pedal rod bag and the original Wade Thomas hard case.
$3300.00 plus shipping. PayPal (add 3%) or cashier’s check accepted.

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: December 31, 2018
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 plan to build one Emmons gloss black mica D-10 push-pull guitar and one red lacquer S-10 Emmons push-pull guitar. These two guitars will be of the same high quality as the black mica S-10 Emmons you see above.
I’ve also recently acquired a gloss black mica Emmons S-10 “Black Rock” push-pull guitar with two original knee levers. I plan to add two more matching OEM levers and do some TLC on it, prior to taking photos and posting it for sale.
I’ve acquired a 1978 red mica Emmons D-10 push-pull guitar that I intend to completely restore. This one has a tremendous amount of previous ownership history! It was originally owned by Chris “Tiny” Olson, who played it on several Gene Watson hits!!
