In order:

1999 Carter SD-10
1996 Carter D-10
1960's Miller Custom
2006 Carter U-12
1966 Sho~Bud D-10
1997 Carter U-12
1970's Miller D-10

I still own the Sho~Bud and the '70s Miller

I would love to have a S-10 with 5 and 5 as a sort-of Universal. Probably a ShoPro or ZB. I like a vintage wood neck, heavy body tone. My Miller is pretty sweet.

Along the way I have accumulated several lap and console steel guitars
but I have not listed them because the thread said "Pedal Steels" Very Happy

I've only been at this 6 years, and I see I have some serious catching up to do! But here goes (* means I still own it)

2011 Stage One (the only one bought new)

2007 Zumsteel Universal

1975 Sho-Bud 12 string * - an ongoing project guitar

1974 Sho-Bud Pro II * - also an ongoing project guitar

1984 Zumsteel D-10

2007 MSA Millenium 3 *

1953 Fender Deluxe 8 *

2006 Millenium 2 *

The price for all of them combined would not buy barely buy a used sports car. So, in the end, this is a pretty cheap hobby (addiction?).

Supro 8 string lap steel
2010 Wilcox SD10

I'm new to pedal steel and the Wilcox was fairly inexpensive. I figured I didn't want to invest a whole lot of money until I was sure pedal steel was for me. So far it is working out OK and eventually I will actually be playing rather than just doing string and bar exercises.

Previously owned:
mid 70's Sho-Bud Pro III D-10
1971 Emmons D-10
1993 GFI SD-10

Currently own:
mid 70's Emmons D-12
late 70's Emmons ST-12
2017 GFI SD-12

For me, 10 strings are fine, but I have found the hard way that as a guy who plays with rock bands I REALLY prefer Extended E9 (and keeping a high G on the C6 neck of my D-12 for my own entertainment).

The guitars I primarily used professionally on gigs for a period of time were, in chronological order...

1968... Fender 2000
1968... 1968 Sho~Bud Crossover
1970... 1970 Sho~Bud Professional
1975... 1975 Sho~Bud Pro III
1977... back to the '70 Professional
1983... 1983 Emmons PP D-10 cut-tail
1987... 1966 Emmons D-10 bolt-on
1992... Fessenden D-10, black
1995... Fessenden D-10 rosewood/maple
1997... Fessenden D-10 coco-bolo/maple
1998... 1965 Emmons D-10 wraparound
2000... 1964 Emmons D-10 wraparound
2014... 2014 Infinity D-10

There are/were/have been many, many varied guitars I've owned interspersed amongst the ones listed above, either for speculation, experimentation, or for resale that I occasionally had on gigs. In the last few decades I've been seen with Emmons S-10s, or a Bigsby T-8, or Stringmasters, or a Sho~Bud Maverick played non-pedal, or some guitars that were just for one-night or a short periods of time. But the ones above are the guitars I think I've been primarily associated with onstage.

I started playing on a D-8 Stringmaster in 1976, that guitar was my brother's. I recall is was not the long scale version, off white.

I then bought two sunburst Fender 400s, one disassembled. I played the other one until 2000. I still have both. Not sure of the year.

In 2000, I bought a black 1982 S10 Emmons, Jimmy Day setup. Have that one too.

Next I got a long scale D-8 Stringmaster, serial # in low 200s, off white.

Finally, I bought a restored red lacquer 1977 D10 Emmons fatback. That's my current squeeze!
