I like blue, and have always wanted a blue steel like Jimmy Day's. I don't have one, but someday.....

I feel the same way about blue; I'd take one with the original copedent, or heck, the original guitar.
Does anyone have a photo of Day's steel?

This used to be mine. Bummer, I sold it to a "friend" that really has no desire to really play. He should give it back to me.

Boy all the “Pretty Blue” ones here all ready, kinda makes me blush to put mine up...buuuuuttttt...here she is...She was a lot bluer back in the day, late 70’s... not sure what happened to most of the blue...probably hiding under the neck...it didn’t even spend much time in the sun and a lot of time in the box... Confused Embarassed Muttering

Blue is REALLY nice on a steel. This thread should slam that home! Here are couple of blue sweeties I've owned.

Great thread Mike. I too have entertained the thought of someday buying a blue steel. Smile

Here's my "Bluey", from the front:-

and from the back:-

Actually, calling this one "Bluey" is a bit of a misnomer. In Australia the name "Bluey" traditionally refers to someone with red hair.

She will dash your hopes on what seems to be whim, only to tease you into renewing the relationship once more so she can do it to you all over again...and yet, if you somehow manage to touch her in that certain magic way, she will yield up a sound which has so much soul, raw emotion and heartfelt depth to it that she will pierce you to the very core of your being.

Quite a few blue beauties here. Dale and Mark van Allen, those faded-blue steels are also quite attractive and unusual.

Here is a Bill Rudolph Williams 600 my wife gave me upon my retirement.


This one belonged to David Kellogg and also Bud Eastman former editor of Guitar Player magazine fame. I may be wrong but when Bud was in charge the magazine had a monthly pedal steel lesson for about three years. Jeff Newman primarily wrote that article but there was at least one other writer.

I think Tom Wheeler then became editor and killed that column. I wrote to him asking when it would be reinstated and he said there were not enough pedal steel players to warrant a monthly column. My reply was that perhaps if Guitar Player took the lead, more players would have been exposed to steel adding to the numbers. Tom did not reply. Too busy "shredding" I guess.

The Zum is kinda purplish-blue.

Hey, Steve, Buddy Emmons and Rusty Young also had long series of columns in Guitar Player, and I believe Tom Bradshaw might have written the first steel guitar column series in G.P. I also wrote to them about the demise of steelness.

Gorgeous guitars, every one.

I have three blue guitars, I think it's my favorite color. I have a Rittenberry, a Derby, and a Carter. All are mica finish. Seems like I only have a picture of the Rittenberry.
