My friend Donny Johnston owns this lovely pedal steel and I first heard it played by him 35years ago I was impressed with it then and I remain so now it was the first twin neck steel I had ever seen and I was in awe of its possibilities.
Donny naturally seized the opportunity and the rest is indeed history
Sorry for the delay Donny!
The guitar has many little features you think are only applied to modern PSGs not so!
We can see under here quick release pedal rack brackets
and quick release pedal rods
a pretty modern style of changer
but with no nylon adjusters or endplate cap screws!
of travel and pitch of the note!
All of the guitars of this era are not terribly light but it is a fair trade off for the build and tonal qualities which people are trying to emulate even now!
In all things we are ships that pass in the night and so often lose the opportunity to renew our acquaintance with these lovely instruments, how many times have you heard a steel player say ‘I wonder where that guitar is .. I wish I had it now’
I hope you enjoyed a closer look
Now for its sound!
That blackbird sounded good at any rate!!
for 40 years not 40 minutes!
Thanks for the opportunity Donny ...
**** Stop Press!! ****
A first after forty years!and many 'Steel Miles'
The last remark remains the same!
Class from a Great Guy!
