I am selling my IMMACULATE Pro II that just came back a few weeks ago from Ricky Davis, who completely re-worked and polished the mechanism. At the same time, the body was completely refinished by Ray Walker who stripped and lacquered the beautiful red burled-maple body. It is a Pro II, double raise and single lower with 8 + 5. George L PF 1 pickups are on both wooden necks. Serial # is 6432 which we believe, means she was manufactured in 1978. It comes in a custom Wheel-Eeze case. I am reluctantly selling this Sho-Bud for personal reasons. Photos can be seen at the House of Wood: www.mightyfinemusic.com/house_of_wood.htm
The price is $2450 plus 1/2 of the shipping and insurance. While this may seem steep, it is basically a new guitar with the classic Sho-Bud sound. Ricky will attest to that! Thanks,
-Jim

Yes indeed this is one Fine Sho~Bud and it's like getting a Brand new Pedal steel except it's a Shobud with THAT sound, that a real brand new guitar can never immulate.
Here's some pics and the Copedent I set up on it for Jim.
Jim is a fine Gentleman and is a treat to do business with. I Played a show with this Shobud, when I was done and it even turned Redd Volkaerts' head.

This guitar is VERY reasonably priced. Anyone wanting a new Sho-Bud that plays great should consider this one, especially after Ricky Davis put his hands on it. Beautiful.

Looks beautiful Jim, That could be the last steel a person could ever need... really. Do you think that line would work on my wife?

The only problem with that B0b is that this would be the third time. SWMBO has deemed I'm only allowed two. Maybe if i begged and cried like a girl it might help.

Al to answer you question about this system; is NO.
This is double raise/ single lower nylon tuning; so the rods are affixed at the puller end. BUT...ha...If you wanted to lower the same string twice...you certainly Can run barrel tuners down the line to lower that particular string as many times you want...but you'll have to have the metal tuner rod on all the strings you want to do this on...>but those are the proper rollers on the pullers to do it....So you would tune the fixed rods with nylon tuners and the barrel tuning rods with allen wrench...yee haaa.

Ricky-What would it take to make all 5 knee levers to work on the C6 neck? All the crossrods don't cover both necks....al

Al it would take a Miracle!!!
And a LOT of money; as you would have to move and replace alot of parts.
