Emmons knees on the left
RKR Lowers an 2 an 9
RKL raises 1 an 2
ABC PEDAL FORTH PEDAL RAISES 7 string F sharp too G sharp
I put a new set of adjustable springs on this steel today works very well,too adjust you use a Phillip screwdriver.

No cabinet drop on this steel has wood rabbit joint in cabinet design! Plus cabinet is a full 3/4 inch thick top front an back maybe this type of wood joint adds a little strength.
Well you guessed its a two over one SHO~BUD CHANGER, KEY HEAD AN NECK With UP GRADED UNDER CARRIAGE AN NEW CABINET.
Tone to die for an very good playability!

$1950 plus Ride

Magnetic switch mounts in a second make very nice wrist rest.

That's a beauty, Johnie. I like the way you've left the maple aprons "proud" of the endplates and aluminum trim, with the nice chamfer on the wood. Can't say I've ever seen that before.

This is ridiculously cool. I totally get why it isn't in this form (most don't use this set-up and parts availability are just the start), but if this was exactly like this, but in extended E9..... I'd find a way to come up with the cash for you, pronto. Like, wow - great job, Johnie!!!!

Thanks Sonny I got your Pm asking about the springs they came off one of my conversions. I got lucky they fit the Bud perfectly.
