Hello fellow steelers, ***new lower Price***
I am selling a great steel guitar. It's my RIttenberry, with 8 & 9. I just got a new Infinity 6 or 7 months ago, which I really like, and am looking at tinkering with a
new something or other steel! This one is a beauty, as you will see from the closeups. Notice the Red in between the chrome strips! A real show stopper, as my buddy Randell Palmore says. I was asking $5500, but I'm lowering the price one time to $5000. This is the one and only reduction. It does have good tone, and this is the guitar my buddy Steve Palousek played that made him want a Rittenberry. It is the one I used on Mine & Steves CD. The guitar has been played by me for the last 2 years quite a bit, but still is in great shape. Its not perfect, but you'll see in the pictures its condition. Ask any questions you like, and I'll try to get back to you asap. Thanks for looking!

Thanks Randell!
I hope someone is interested, I may have to be a little flexible I guess.

PS...I just notice the piece of paper towel stuck to the string in one of the pics. Tried to shine it a little bit...the paper won't come with the steel, for sure.

John, are you wanting the steels copedant?
lets see....8 floors and 9 pedals
e9
pedal 1 = franklin pedal
pedal 2 = raise b's to C#
pedal 3 = G#'s to A
pedal 4 = B & C up 1 whole tone each

LKL front = raise E's half tone
LKL back = raise 1 & 7 strings 1 whole tone
LVL = lower b's to Bb
LKR = lower e's to Eb
RKR = 2nd string 1/2 & 1 tone lowered, 9th string 1/2 tone lower, 10th 1 whole lower
RKL = 1st & 2nd strings raise to unison with 3 & 4

C6
pedal 4 = raise a's to B
pedal 5, 6, 7, & 8 are standard c6th
RKR = 3rd string up 1/2 tone
RKL = 3rd string down 1/2 tone
LVL = raise both a's to Bb
LKL = lower 4th 1/2 tone, 9th str 1 whole lower (buck reid change)
LKR = 2nd str e to f, 6th str e to Eb

I think that's pretty close!

Wow Larry... that is a lot of guitar... I sure hope you won’t miss her when she’s gone, but suspect you will... Wish I was the guy getting her from you... why don’t these things come along when my pockets are full? Confused Sad Sad

Larry,

If you remember, I bought your Zumsteel a few years back and it was oversized height... is this guitar standard height or higher...?
