SOLD
THIS steel is going to Colorado. Perhaps the best sounding steel I’ve had at least one of the best.


Guys this is basically a new Bud.

The two over one changer came from the back C6th neck It has no signs of wear
An the bud key head is from the back neck plus the aluminum neck was from the back neck.


4 fold out knee flags gives you the feel an comfort on the knees of a Sd 10


Custom Sho Bud

New End plates

New improved bell cranks with three eights square cross shaft.

New Cabinet

New pedal bar


New improved knee lever stops

She’s a Hybrid Sho Bud basically with much better pull train and much better cabinet design that made the cabinet have more strength in turn with this cabinet design this steel has 0 cabinet drop!!!!

She’s a hot rod with Sho~Bud changer an neck an new Birdseye cabinet an better 6061
Aluminum undercarriage with five hole bell cranks an three eighths cross shafts.

Would rather not ship this steel.
Need to be played in person to appreciate the tone an great sustain!!


Surprised 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


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!

Magnetic works with a switch mounts in a second makes a 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 Damir I’m on the fence I may keep this Bud an my Gs Emmons’s I haven’t found any steels with the good tone of these old steels.
A Franklin would work if I win the lottery.

If this is a Sho Bud :::: I think it’s safe to call my Sho Bud build a Bud too!!!

Only difference in my Bud an the Factory Bud is I had much more control over the process it takes for good snug fitting end plates an snug fit where the cabinet aprons front an back meet the leg sockets. It’s basically a friction fit where it needs to be.
An the 3/8 ‘s square cross shafts with bell cranks made to slip over cross shafts can be taken off with one Allen screw. For copeadent changes without removing cross shafts.
This steel has no cabinet drop. I relate that too the rabbit joint that gives more material for glue joint plus all wood an aluminum are friction fit.
