Bob, is it just me or are all the pics on the thread you mention no longer there?

Those pictures from 2006 are actually stored on Basil's web site, which doesn't use https. Your browser may be refusing to load them because of that. The internet is changing!

b0b, I have transferred the pictures to the new forum as I can't edit the 'old post'..
That old post is now duplicated (with pictures stored on your server..) Here:-->

Basil this is very interesting, however the 3rd and 4th video come up as being unavailable... I remember drooling over the Fender Catalog that had this in it, but never ever got close to one.

I've sorted out the viewing permissions Dale..ALL is OK NOW..

I have a vague memory of Jerry Garcia playing one of these. Can anyone confirm? I didn't know anything about pedal steel at the time, so I may be mistaken.

I've collected several photos of Jerry on pedal steel and I've never seen him on a PS-210...I'd love to see one if it exists Winking

Also the story I've read is he originally tried to learn on a Fender 400 and gave up. A few months later the Dead were passing through Denver and he stopped at a music store. They had a more traditional 3x4 and the salesman explained how it's tuned and the basics of the pedal/knee changes and the light bulb went on over Jerry's head and he bought it. The story then goes that he had it shipped to the infamous Haight-Ashbury Dead house and pretty much locked himself in a room on the 2nd floor and worked hard for about 6 months to learn.

At least that's the story I've heard, I'm sure there are other variations floating around Smile

I'm still seeing that two of the videos are private and can't be viewed.

Dennis, the store that Jerry Garcia probably visited would have been Guitar City. Don Edwards owned it at that time, and sold pedal steels. IIRC, I seem to recall seeing Garcia playing a ZB guitar prior to playing a Sho-Bud.

Interesting! Here's a couple great shots I have of Jerry on a ZB. I have pix of him on an MCI and Emmons as well but I think the earliest shots I have of him are on a ZB. Maybe this is the same one he bought from Guitar City?
