We have finished restoration work on this old pedal, converting it to a console, double ten.
The earlier photos show that it was pretty much a write-off, missing all pedal parts.
I believe, a late 50's guitar, it has a great tone with the old pickups and the changing to solid saddle and nuts. I am unsure if this will offend the pedal boys, but it is a great player
now.

I think that's a great idea, particularly for those folks that play 10 string tunings.

I bet there are a fair number of old pedal steels that could be de-constructed.

Seems like a great idea to me, especially since it wasnt a functional pedal steel before you set to work on it. I bet it does sound good, and having 10 strings would be a big plus for it also. Nice work !! I would think that would inspire people to do the same to an old pedal steel they have that would cost a small fortune to revive as a pedal steel.
