Have you always wanted your steel to cut like an angsty teenager AND have the mids of a medieval cannon? Do you wish that all your gear had more vibe and cool than any blacklight poster or lava lamp? Maybe you need validation from the jealousy of all your steel guitar friends. I know all of this is true for me - and that's why I bought Bruce Zumsteg's 1966 bolt on.
The first time I played this on stage I almost forgot how much I didn't want to be playing with a wedding band. As we sludged through Sweet Caroline I was completely enveloped in the AMAZING TONE of this bolt on. While I feigned playing during "24k magic" I admired the details of mid century design and fabrication. I wondered if the Big E himself had touched this steel. I can't guarantee he did, but I can't disprove it either. So I'm officially saying this steel may or may not have been played by Buddy Emmons.

According to Mr.Zumsteg he purchased the stel from the first or second owner around '89 or '90. I purchased it from him in 2017. Craig Holden, PP guru, switched it to Emmons setup for me. It's 8x6 and I put the original pickups in it. It came to me 8x7 and I removed the vertical, but will include it in the sale. This steel sounds incredible. Bite, growl, beautiful mids, very smooth high end. The back neck is particularly nice sounding. Cabinet drop on E9 is BARELY perceptible on my sonic research tuner. This is a rock solid steel.











Price is 6k plus shipping.
