Hello all,
I'm posting this on behalf of Martin Shakeshaft, the son of Ray Shakeshaft. Just under a year ago Ray was struck down by a stroke, resulting in Ray have to go into 24hr care.
Family & friends had high hopes that Ray would recover enough too start play again, but sadly not so.

The cost of Rays care is high, resulting in the family having to make some tough decisions, hence the sale of Rays lap steel collection.

Martin has taken some pictures of the collection and has an idea of the price he wants. Please follow the link see what's on offer, and contact Martin or myself if interested

Many thanks for looking

I'm sorry to hear it. I'll share the link around various places I know and see if we can get some buyers.

Hi folks, I wanted to give this post a bump up to the top of the listing for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, I became the proud owner of some resonator guitars from Ray's collection today - great guitars but sad, albeit enormously important, reason for their sale i.e. to help pay Ray's residential care costs since his stroke. Many thanks to Martin Shakeshaft for his patience whilst I kept trying out each of the reso's.
The second reason, there are some great electric slide guitars there for sale, Im not an electric player but could see their worth - us UK players dont often get the chance of our Stateside cousins to have such a selection to purchase from!.
You can see the selection from the link at the top of this thread.
You can email Martin on martinATmartinshakeshaftDOTcom
Cheers, Mike Shipman.
