Greetings & blessings to all. I've just joined the forum, & I have some questions referring to what I believe to be an Emmons GS 10 Student Model Pedal Steel. 3 floors & 3 knees. Serial # is GS273. I am new to pedal steel. Could anyone tell me if this is a Push-Pull or a All-Pull, & what year this might be, & where I might obtain a Manual for setup & adjustment purposes. I've researched the net & I'm thinking this is a Push-Pull, & I've not found anything in the form of any kind of Manual. Thank to anyone who could help me with any support.

Welcome to the SGF! It's a push-pull guitar. Although they are modest-looking, the GS10 has a reputation for sounding as good, or even better (according to some posts I've read) than professional-grade Emmons push-pulls, which is saying something. With 3 knee levers - a bonus for a student model from that era - it should be a fine rig to learn on. Search the forum and you'll find plenty of threads on the GS10.

Hi Randy if you have no raised neck I would say you have a GS10 but if your guitar has a 1/4 “ raised neck it is more likely a BlackRock which I think came standard with a 3*3 setup . And yes you have a push pull guitar .

If guitars with no necks sounds this good, they why even put a neck on a steel guitar?

Jackson doesn't put one on the Blackjack model, and they sound great..
