Black Lashley LeGrande II, 8x8, Serial #1733L, Schallers, 108N Humbuckers, Case in great shape. Standard Emmons pedal set-up both necks.

E9 knees: Es on left, LKV raise 2 to E & 7 to G, RKL raise 1 to G# and lower 6 to F# with split, RKR lower 2 to D/C# and lower 9 to C#.

NOTE: RKL string 1 raise has a taller bellcrank to shorten the throw. 1/2 step feel to G is accomplished by the lever's other changes not starting until afterwards.

C6 knees: LKL raise both 3 & 7 to C#, LKV lower 2 & raise 6 both 1/2 tone, LKR lowers 1 & 5 from G to F#, RKL lower 3 to B, RKR raise 4 to Bb.


Please look closely at pics. There are 2 scratches on the tuning gear endplate. Otherwise, steel in great shape and plays beautifully.

This steel has a big, remarkably balanced, Hi-Fi tone with the Emmons Humbuckers onboard. The string note seperation is great!

Priced to sell at $3450 plus ground shipping from 32960 in Florida. Would like to ship before May 22nd.

That's tempting! The guitar is in Vero Beach?

Hi Roger. We met at the Riverside Theater a year or two ago. I am in Vero Beach. Could meet you in Yeehaw Junction or Lake Wales and off we go!

Of course, Doug - now I remember.

Just thinking about it at this stage but it looks very nice. Is it a '97?

I'm thinking bout it too. I am near Clearwater, and been looking for a local D-10, as I don't trust shippers & I gotta play it first.
If Roger doesn't take it, PM me.

This is a lot of guitar for a great price, folks. A loaded black Emmons???

I am tempted as I said but I'm about to leave for my Summer gig in ND and I really can't fit it in before I go. If it's still here in September (unlikely) this puppy is mine!

I like the look of a plain Emmons. I've been playing them since 1980. When I started playing the all-pulls I've just removed the LL sticker from them.

I'm surprised this hasn't been snapped up - look at all those knee-levers!

Maybe it will still be available in September.... Whoa!

Roger, If it doesn't sell by Wednesday I'm going to close it up until I return the end of October.

TTT for Doug.


Being an LII owner, I can't imagine that someone who is in the market for a NEW ERA ALL PULL Pedal Steel has not grabbed this baby.

8+8 ? Holy cow, the added 3 Knee levers from the traditional 5 up to 8 are worth near $500 just by themselves !

There may be more expensive ALL PULLS out there but are they better ? Different, sure, but I doubt better.

This is the D10 deal on this forum.

IF I did't own 3 Emmons Steels already I would own this one and never look back. 8 + 8 ? good grief , it's all anyone could ask for.

Close 'er up for now. I just don't have time to seal a deal before I leave Florida. Will Re-list the end of October. Thanks again for all the inquiries. - DJ -
