I recently bought a Fender D8 Stringmaster and I'm enjoying it very much. I would like to see how many of you own these great steels. Let's have a look at yours. Here's mine. Thanks

When I started out on Steel Guitar the pedals were a thing of the near future. I owned a Triple neck stringmaster but traded it in for a Fender 1000. Later , after I got into the pedal world I wanted to acquire a non-pedal steel, but I wanted more than 8 strings and I wanted the same string spacing as I had gotten used to on the pedal steel. So I ventured out and came up with my own version of a Triple neck nine string. So this is my (string-master). It's had a lot of use and sounds as good as anything I have encountered since I built it. I hope this is not considered an intrusion to this Forum entry...Thiel

Those Stringmasters are sweet. Back in 1986 I had a beautiful double light yellow that I got for a trade. Months later - I was down and out , took it to a pawn shop in Seattle, got a loan ( to buy food). Weeks later the pawn shop went out of business, doors chained up, windows papered over, and that was that, "doh!" I lost the Stringmaster. That put off my steel playing for quite a few years. Ah, the envy, looking at all those beauties! Still haunts me.

I am blown away at the number of quads and triples shown. Thats some heavy artillery.
I've have 3 Stringmasters (so far). An early 56 D8 with push buttons, a late 56 D8 with knife switch and a 56 T8.
