One of the first 45s I had was 'School Days'/'Deep Feeling'. Little did I know that the b-side was my first exposure to steel guitar.

Berry's lyrics were sensational! Nobody painted a picture wit ...

PostForum Section: Steel Players   Posted: 14 Mar 2017 10:17 am   Subject: String breakage problem
I doubt that brand has anything to do with this. It's often a run of bad strings. I've had that with D'Addario electric guitar strings - and I never break strings on my Telecasters in the normal way ...

Looking more closely at the numbers and assembly dates of my two new LeGrandes there's about two hundred steels in between them. That's a period of 26 months and it indicates slightly less than 8 new ...

Sometime in late-2001, Jerry, if there's any logic to be gleaned from their somewhat haphazard numbering system.

Did you buy yours used or new?

Just for the record...

My SD-10 (#1886-L) had the end-plate cutout for C6th. I ordered it from the UK on May 15th, 1998.

I had hoped I'd ordered in plenty of time - my first US gig ever started ...

I've had two new LeGrandes. The first was delivered in Summer of 1998 and it's number was 1886L.

That was an SD-10 (Sapphire Blue) but then I ordered a black D-10 - I still have that one (and alway ...

I think I might have enjoyed acquiring the Blade had I been in a position to buy the guitar from Buddy directly. But, having said that, I'm probably the least-deserving steel player on the planet.

One of my uses for my LKV (raising 1,2 and 7) goes in tandem with pedals down (a nice major-7th chord across the top six strings!) and I, too, make full use of the leverage that Mike mentioned.

Hi, Bud.

The important thing for me is to be able to lower the 5th as well as raising or lowering my Es at the same time as being able to use pedals. So I don't think the Day/Emmons factor is impor ...

I agree, Mike! I know many put it (or inherit it, anyway) on LKV but for me it's on RKL on all my guitars.

The vertical is too awkward for me so I've assigned my least-used change (raising 1,2,7) ...

I knew Vic a little bit. He actually finished up with my red-and-maple ZB S-10 that I'd traded for a new D-10 from the late Eric Snowball.

I believe the residue of that band (the Kursaal Flyers) a ...

I have an English pal who insists on spelling it 'Jerry Reid'!

I love Alison's work - I always have. A true child prodigy who more than fulfilled that early promise.
