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).

1999 gloss black mica all-pull JCH D-10 8×5 (Sold!)

This is one of the very last guitars that the late Jimmy Crawford and John Hughey produced and utilizes the latest changer design (featuring raise helper springs). The letters JCH stand for Jenkins (Conway Twitty’s real name was Harold Jenkins), Crawford and Hughey. The serial number is 9903. You’ll notice that there are quite a few polished parts in the under carriage, so I feel the original owner must have paid a premium for this upgrade. This is a very smooth playing all-pull guitar, very similar in looks to an early Emmons Lashley LeGrande with 4 hole rod pullers. It’s an original (except for the pickups) un-restored guitar in very nice 9/10 condition. These are very desirable guitars with excellent playability and awesome tone! I believe Jimmy only produced between 200 – 300 guitars in total, so they are extremely rare and very hard to find, especially in this condition!

This guitar has a triple raise, tripple lower changer and split-tuning capability for every string. For example; using RKL (F#) and Pedal 2 (A) results with a tunable G note for the 6th string. I changed the strings, did a thorough detail, lube and a set-up, so it’s all dialed in and ready to gig!

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 19K ohms.

$4500.00 plus shipping. PayPal (add 3%) or cashier’s check accepted.

1974 satin rosewood Emmons push-pull D-10 8×5

I recently completely restored this mid 1974 Emmons guitar S/N 1876 D. I sold it last year to a customer in Seattle, Washington who has decided not to pursue playing the C6 neck, so he’s trading it in for a single neck Emmons guitar.

I originally bought this 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. Includes a nice leg/pedal rod bag and a like new Wade Thomas hard case.

Note: This guitar is very similar to the guitar featured right below. It’s a little earlier, so it still has the wider version cast pedals that were phased out by the end of 1974. They both play great, have that distinctive Emmons push-pull bell-like tone and wonderful sustain!

Coming Soon: (not quite ready to post for sale yet) Update: May 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.

This year I plan to completely restore a one-owner gloss black mica 1981 Emmons D-10 8×5 push-pull guitar (pictured below in its present condition).

I also plan to completely restore a 1978 Sho-Bud “LDG” SD-10 3×4 all-pull guitar. Below is a photo of it in its present condition.  The guitar is in great original condition overall but the green lacquer finish has faded, so it will be stripped and refinished back to a beautiful emerald green.

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.
