1980 Beck Musical Instruments D-10 Double-Neck Pedal Steel Guitar In Great Shape. This Beck BMI D-10 double-neck pedal steel guitar is a professional musicians instrument. It has 8 pedals and 4 knee levers, has E9 and C6 tuning on the necks.
If your desire in playing a steel guitar is to make the sounds like the professional pickers turn out, it would be easier with E9 and C6 tuning, 8 pedals and 4 knee levers. A single neck with a smaller number of knee levers and foot pedals won't give you as much of that ability.Some of the strings on the bottom neck were removed so I could play the guitar using a Dobro 6 string tuning. Company records show the guitar was made in 1980, and any replacement parts it may ever need are still available directly from BMI. Also included is a beautiful new plush steel guitar case which has been tastefully adapted internally to the BMI D-10 and a working Ernie Ball volume pedal. A vinyl case is provided for the legs and rods. The pedals for the strings may need adjustments. Included with the steel are extra strings, a tuner with a fresh battery, tuning chart, adjustment key, 2 pliers, a string windup crank, a steel bar, finger picks and a thumb pick that are stored in a pickers favorite; a Crown Royal Bag.
The only faults I found are that one of the black keyed tuner pegs on the rear of the steel will need to be replaced and the chrome on the legs is discolored. Pro-level pedal steel guitars like this one have become outrageously expensive in the past few years.
New steels can cost as much as a nice new motorcycle, and even used ones can cost as much or more than a decent used car. Even if you are a beginner, having a really good steel guitar makes it easier to learn. As your skill progresses, you won't have to sell your old one to "trade up" to a better instrument -- you already own it.
