When it comes to ZB's, the top side looks a lot classier than the underside. Whoa!

I bought this ‘69 Bakersfield D10 (serial # 0107) a couple weeks ago here on the forum. Took her down, cleaned her up and she’s playing like a top. She was probably the filthiest guitar I’ve ever encountered, but most of it came off and once I got the E9 changer degunked, the guitar came alive. Now I need some knee levers... what tone! Brumley!

Congrats on getting the ZB Abe, nice one you got there! That wood graining is awesome on it. Prettiest looking and sounding steel guitars out there. I have a 69’ ZB d10 Serial 0066 , looks just like yours. I’d be curious to find out how many pedal steels ZB made in 1969.

Does anyone have two D-10 key heads available? My '69 was bored out for larger tuners that don't work too well and I'd like to replace them back to original.

thanks,
Joe

This is my 1969 D-11/10 built in Bakersfield, Ca. Ser# 0125
This is a little tune I composed for the pedal steel doing a salute to traditional country style. I noticed I forgot to throw in the Hal Rugg lick after I recorded it. Oh well. The pedals were so stiff and the knee levers so far apart I could barely play this guitar but the tone is great on these machines. Just wanted to have a beautiful ZB in my collection of pedal steels.

I don't believe this has been posted previously, and surely the ZB-ophiles will want to hear it.

This music-blog https://artworkbymanicmark.blogspot.com/2017/01/zane-beck-plays-new-zb-model.html has a particularly respectful policy, so there's only a single song uploaded, written and beautifully sung by the lovely LaRue McAnulty, of heavenly voice and heaven-bound hairdo. Zane's playing speaks for itself, but Bill Sims (who once gave me a guided tour around ZB's South Phoenix factory) supplies liner notes and details.
