At last! A genuine bass player who can play Theme From A Summer Plaice. It was quite difficult to play, so he had to mullet over first.

I can't think of anyone better than Jeff Surratt of Show Pro steel guitars. He's a busy boy, but I'm sure he could help you in some way.

I like the narrow bevelled Emmons push pull pedals, but I can't lay my hands on one for you to copy.

Sorry Marc. I edited my post just after you posted you last comment. Leave enough slack in the 9th string lower so that it won't start lowering string 9 until string 2 hits the D note.

Yep - a Show Pro with 710's fitted sounds as good as it gets. The tone is just huge. Jeff has done you proud with that guitar. Every time I look at my guitar I just feel so honoured to own it.

I have a D10 Show Pro, and as long as they are in a decent road case they are as good on the road as any pedal steel guitar. A pedal steel is a precision instrument and as such needs to be handled wit ...
