Other Hawaiian Steels
This Style 1 was made during the first year of production.
Late 40's Fender Dual Professional
walnut "jewel" features both a "Trapazoidal" pickup and a "Boxcar". A
fascinating pickup design ...
This is the original D8 ... before they assigned the "Lyric" name to
them. A mainstay steel from the "Hawaii Calls" era ...
Early 70's Fender Stringmaster
ebony rascal was made at the "end of a era" ...
80's OMI Dobro
This dobro was made by the Original Musical Instrument Co. ... before
Gibson bought the rights to the Dobro name ... It has recieved an upgrade from
Paul Beard ...
"modern" frypan is sportin' a set of my Hardened Steel Horseshoe Magnets
... Modern Materials .... Prewar sound !!!
Sierra Laptop 8
Horseshoe Magnet Pickup ....this is one fine sounding steel guitar.
These are my "Longfellow Magnets" ... extra long to compensate for
the exaggerated string spacing on this 8 string beauty. An adjustable
mounting system was developed to utilize the existing 4 mounting screws. The
only modification to the steel involved widenin' the pickguard to accomodate
these 1 1/2" monsters.
2000 Superior Weissy
nice reproduction of the Weissenborn style Hawaiian guitar
