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).

“New” mid 70’s style red/orange birdseye lacquer Emmons push-pull S-10 3×4

I just finished building this guitar using various new and used parts that I’ve accumulated over the years.  Please note; this is not a restoration but is virtually like a new Emmons guitar! Believe it or not, the lacquer finish in this original Emmons cabinet from the 70’s has not been refinished! All aluminum brightwork, were professionally polished, neck jeweled , etc. and the fret board is a new Emmons Factory replacement. All four knee levers are brand new Emmons,  with black anodized handles. The Kluson keys are in great condition and the current legs are standard height. I happen to have a set of 1″ over standard legs in stock, so it would be a simple matter to raise the guitar up 1″ higher.

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). The Emmons single coil pickup is wound to about 18K ohms. The guitar plays just great, has that distinctive Emmons push-pull bell-like tone and wonderful sustain! Included is a new D2F leg/pedal rod bag and the original Wade Thomas hard case in nice condition.

$3000.00 plus shipping. PayPal (add 3%) or cashier’s check accepted.

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

1973 gloss black mica Emmons push-pull S-10 3×5

I recently acquired this gorgeous Emmons S-10 (S/N 1317S) that my friend, Tommy Cass completely restored just a few years ago. It’s a “fatback” cabinet with a cut-tail style changer. I just finished installing new D’Adderio strings, revising the setup and detailing it, so it’s ready to go!

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: April 15, 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 you see above and the black mica S-10 Emmons that has been sold.

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!!
