Shopbuilt 6-String PEDAL STEEL GUITAR. IMPORTANT: This is NOT a conventional pedal steel guitar like those made by Sho-Bud or Emmons or ZB or ZumSteel or Mullen, or ANY of the major pedal steel manufacturers.
It was made by me, in our garage, as a simplified instrument for those times when I wanted to add pedal steel guitar flavor to the recordings I produce for myself and other singer/songwriters, without the annoying constant maintenance and adjustments inherent in factory-made pedal steel guitars. And guitar players will find it to be like a regular Strat or Tele lying on its side (and up on legs) with string-bending pedals instead of the more common and far, far more expensive Hipshot or Parsons-White B-bender systems. The changer mechanism is drastically simplified from even the simplest factory-made setups, and only requires occasional adjustments of the pedal/rod connectors instead of the nearly constant attention even the most expensive pro models often demand. Of course, it will sound best through an amp that has reverb.
The pedals work they way they're supposed to, and according to my electronic tuner a harmonic chime at the 12. Fret position is perfectly in tune. Again, the current tuning is guitar standard E B G D A E with pedal1 raising the B to C, pedal 2 raising the D to E, and pedal 3 raising the G to A. A I (ONE) chord is achieved by playing strings 2, 3 and 4, anywhere on the neck, and pressing pedal 1 changes the I chord to a IV (FOUR) chord.
For example, holding the tone bar parallel with the 5. Fret is a C major, and pressing pedal 1 changes it to an F chord. A VI (SIX) chord is made by playing strings 1, 2, 3, and adding pedal 2 raises string 4 from D to E, allowing a lower note to the chord.Pedal 3 offers some interesting possibilities for the G string.
