Sho Bud Professional Pedal Steel Guitar! This is a classic pedal steel and has a great sound. Comes with an original Sho-Bud case, and all rods and legs.
This is a working, playable classic instrument. The finish is in very good shape, except for between the necks where there is some scratching of the finish (see photos). The pickups are not original. Case is in good shape.
It needs a some TLC by someone familiar with these particular instruments for 3 specific issues (2 on E9 neck, one on C6 neck), otherwise its a fantastic instrument. I have played out and recorded with it.If I didn't have anther D-10 and an S-10, I'd fix this and it'd be a keeper. Issue #1: The bracket for the tuning screw (bridge end) for the LKR lever has cracked. As a result, the LKR works for the 4th string but not the 8th. It lowers the 4th but not the 8th. You can see this in the picture of the E9 tuning screws.
Issue #2: The 5th string sometimes stays sharp after using both A and B pedals. This can be corrected while playing by tapping the pedal upwards with the tip of your foot, but it's not a consistent issue. I'd imagine that with a good going over and a new spring this will go away. It never happened until the bracket broke (Issue #1) so my guess is it's some kind of tension-related issue. (I don't really play this neck so everything seems to be working with this one minor issue).Issue #3: The tuning screw for the 3 string is loose. It engages and the lever changes string pitch. Since I don't play the C6 neck I haven't tuned that changer and don't know if the looseness matters. You can see this in the picture of the C6 neck tuning screws.
