Sho-Bud was a steel guitar manufacturer started by players Shot Jackson and Buddy Emmons. The two founded the company in 1955 and it lives on today under the name Jackson Steel Guitar Company. This is a guitar from their heyday back in the ‘70s, 1974 to be exact. This is a 6139 pedal steel with three pedals and one knee lever. This guitar employs Sho-Bud’s “rack and barrel” pulling system for ease of pedal tuning and changing of rods. This instrument is in excellent condition, with on some checking and inlay shrinkage around the cabinet. Speaking of the cabinet, it is made with gorgeous Bird’s Eye Maple. The fret-board is the “dust catcher” style with raised frets and card suit inlays. The electronics are in perfect working order, including the original volume pedal and ¼ inch cable. Included with the instrument are two tone bars, one rounded nose and one brass “professional” shaped bar. The case is in good condition, save for the guide strap on the inside that has detached from the bottom of the case. If you’re looking for that vintage Nashville sound, then this is the pedal steel for you!
