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 (Sold!)
I completely restored this mid 1974 Emmons guitar S/N 1876 D. I originally bought the guitar a couple of years ago from a pawn shop in Modesto, California of all places. It was completely original and unmolested and was probably seldom played by the original owner, due to the lack of play wear present. It was completely disassembled, inspected, thoroughly cleaned and reassembled. All aluminum brightwork was professionally polished, necks jeweled , etc. and the fret boards are new Emmons Factory replacements. The original Kluson keys are in great condition and the legs are standard height.
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. 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 a like new Wade Thomas hard case.
$4200.00 plus shipping. PayPal (add 3%) or cashier’s check accepted.

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: August 16, 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.
1978 Sho-Bud LDG all-pull SD-10 3×4 (Sold!)
I’m now in the process of completely restoring this Sho-Bud “LDG”. Below is a photo of it in what was its great original condition. The green lacquer finish had faded, so the cabinet has been stripped and is being refinished back to a beautiful emerald green. Bob Littleton will have it done in the next couple of weeks, so I’ll begin the reassembly process soon!
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.
I 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 OEM levers and do some TLC on it prior to taking photos, so stay tuned…
Also, I’ll soon acquire a 1978 red mica Emmons D-10 push-pull guitar that I intend to completely restore. This one has a tremendous amount of ownership history! It was originally owned by Chris “Tiny” Olson, who played it on several Gene Watson hits!!
