I am offering for sale my trusty and classic ShoBud The Professional D-10 pedal steel guitar. Round front, wide pedals, lacquer finish. Made in 1974, it has 8 pedals and 5 knees, one of which was added after manufacture. The second LKL lever operates the back neck. The guitar plays nicely and the tobacco brown finish has a few bar dings, but no substantial blemishes. End plates could use cleaning. There are no cracks behind the changer, as some guitars have. The undercarriage is the desirable rack and barrel style. Very easy to change tuning setup. I have added 3/4 spacers to the keep the front legs at a height to match pedal rod length.
Pickup on C6 neck appears to be BL710, E9 has original pickup. Both sound great. Plastic cap on toggle switch is missing. Original case protects well but has a small crack, from rough handling, at one end where a wheel had been mounted. Bank check or paypal $1800. plus $150. shipping from here in California to continental USA. I will pack it well, with padding outside the case as well as inside. Email for info.
