I couldn't find a section to put this so if it's not allowed please move it. I found this photo in my late dad's room. I have no idea of who it is and thought maybe it could be one of you guys or perhaps someone knew something about it. I have no idea when or where it was taken and I hate to trash it in case someone knows something about it. Thanks

I don't remember his name, but in 1961/62 I was stationed in Taipei Taiwan, in the Air Force. We had a band and the singer had been a regular on the Big D Jamboree and on some Kids TV program in Dallas.

The steel player we had in the band was from Beaumont, Tx. I only remember his first name "Bobbie". He had a D8 Fender that he modified and added one pedal.

Wonder if I have his guitar.
i have an old fender 8 that had another neck. Long gone. The guitar was given to me from a pal who found it in a dumpster. We since got it up and running but the thing is, it has drill holes thru the tuning pan and thru the body for some kind of string stretcher on a string or two.
Course, we'll never really know.

The holes may have been for a Shot Jackson style pedal (see photo) although being directly in line with one another makes me wonder..

Of course, the photo above is not Shot Jackson-style, that is Paul Bigsby style.

This is Shot Jackson style, from the first DALAND guitar, which was the first pedal steel Shot Jackson helped build from scratch as a pedal steel. They made ten is six weeks in Late Summer 1954. Don Davis was the DA and Hank Garland was the LAND. Ray Butts made the pickups -- eight string humbucking Filtertrons before Filtertrons. Shot Jackson did the mechanics. An antique restorer/furniture repair shop in Nashville did the cabinets. The pedals, which Shot used on many of his Fender conversions, were from Don Davis' shop where he made dragsters. I cannot think of anything else -- endplate and keyhead castings were copied from Bigsby castings.
Here is Shot Jackson keyhead plunger work. I am restoring this guitar right now.
