4400



$4600.

This Fulawka has the best tone of any guitar Ive owned, and is the second smoothest-playing. The Knee Levers are short throw. There is no cabinet drop and it stays in tune. Each bellcrank is custom matched to the desired pull and synchronized. The little pull switch toggles RKL between necks, for easier operation. Pedal 4 is shared with both necks, see copedent. 705 pickups. Road Case. It is also beautiful, a deep purple color (note some bar damage to the lacquer on the neck) instead of the usual brown. There is a series of youtube videos showing the manufacturing process.


I am selling because the RKR has a half shaft and cannot be hooked up to the C6 neck, and there are other copedent changes Id like. I talked to Ed who said if I sent it in for modification he would do it immediately, but I decided against it. (This ad was written shortly before Ed's passing) I received it with a large quantity of OEM rods, bellcranks, and little parts, for most anything you'd want to DIY. Not sure where they came from since its pretty well equipped already.

The only guitars in this price range that I havent owned are Franklin and Zum which I might consider for trade, but not any others thank you.

You can call or text 262 7 oh 5 3484

Besides the incredible mechanics this Fulawka steel has a royal color. Very special indeed.

I guess its a bit of a mis-label. There is a shared knee lever as described. You could actually set it to be functional on both necks simultaneously or remove some effort by switiching.

It is not a Hybrid changer, but it has the pull rod to switch a knee lever to work on both necks great idea from Ed Fulawka, Zum steels have Hybrid changers on some steel guitars, there is usually extra tunning rods in the endplate with nylon tuners this is a hybrid changer, don't have a picture of one to post, but maybe someone does, I don't know of any other steel guitars using a hybrid changer other than zum steel.

On my Fulawka it had two knobs, one to switch the RKL from neck to neck and one to switch the RKR from neck to neck.

Every steel guitar has it's own unique qualities depending on builder, Ed has been incorporating high quality into his guitars way before all the other builders and way before pedals were even thought of on a steel guitar, Ed was putting pedals on steel guitars back in the 50's before guitar builders like Emmons were most guitar builders were still using cable methods, but not Ed he always used rods, so dive in and buy it his warranties cover it for life.
