Description

Very Rare classic 1950's instrument. Built by Blankenship and Wheeler. Beautiful Birdseye Maple guitar. Great tone . Needs some pedal set up work. It has 6 pedals and 1 knee lever . Missing neck selector switch.
The story I heard was Blankenship has seen a Bigsby come thru town in the 50's and built something similar. the guitar features some cool castings and a nice sound.
Would make a classic sounding 50's guitar for non pedal or pedal steel.
There is no case with the guitar.
This is one of a few personal and vintage guitars I am offering for sale. After a few are sold I will keep the remaining.
