This Emmons is the gorgeous Glossy Rosewood finish Formica not the dull Matt finish.
The pictures does not do her justice!!!
She’s just as nice underneath as the top side!!

If you have been looking for a mint Emmons push pull with a fresh set up by the Master himself Billy Knowles here she is.

Now I know how well a push pull can play with the a set up done by Billy Knowles
$3850 plus ride trades considered for quality steels.

The person I got this steel from told me Billy Knowles did the set up a couple months or so ago

She tunes out great plays like a dream, sounds like a good push pull.

9 an 6 push pull
ABC pedals an Emmons knees on left.

Thank you Erv I can’t wait to make her shine with mother’s aluminum polish or smichrome polish she’s going to look like a new Emmons. Stay tuned..

Billy has this steel playing unbelievably good!!!

I have original Emmons pickups that were removed in favor of the 705s.

If you knew how nice this Emmons is you would not want her shipped but I can pack her well.
I Secure steel in case then wrap case an steel in
foam top bottom an sides.
Then I build a shipping case with 1/2 inch Baltic birch for side an ends , then use 3/8s inch plywood for top and bottom, the bottom is glued an stapled on, the top is screwed on with number 8 one inch wood screws. The ends are screwed with 1 an 1/4 inch screws
Also I use metal brackets on the four corners.
Also place a handle on shipping Case.
Route a radius an sand all edges

When one refers to a push pull mechanisms are there distinct
pro and cons?

The one I would really love to have is the front left black S10 Push-Pull. But I cannot afford it.

Gilbert,
The p/p gives you superior sound but it's not conducive to making a lot of changes in the copedent.
Also, if you have raise and lower on the same string, you have to allow some slack in the raise or you can't make the lower work. Very Happy

Erv is 100 percent correct.
If tone is not a huge factor for you and you like too have lots of knees leavers an pedals an splits I would consider a all pull With a good tone.

One plus on a push pull is once there set up bye a good push pull mechanic.
You rarely have too tune pedals an knees at the end plate.
