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).
Mid 70’s gloss black mica Emmons “Black Rock” model push-pull S-10 3×4
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: June 13, 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 plan to build an Emmons gloss black mica D-10 push-pull guitar. This guitar will be of the same high quality as the ’70’s style red/orange S-10 Emmons and the black mica S-10 Emmons that have been sold.
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!!
