Dickey Overbey kicks ass

Seriously, this guy is one of the premiere E9th players ever

Seriously, this guy is one of the premier E9th players ever. He played steel with Faron before I did, and he was known to stay up all night on long bus trips, working on his guitar. He might have some parts left over the next day, but he’d be ready for the gig that night. Here he is with Kimberly Murray. The way he releases some of the pedals so slowly is impeccable.

  1. Dear Mr. Sharp,

    I have been a steel guitar admirer of Mr. Overbey’s for years, but I have never known what sort of Sho-Bud he plays. I am afraid that I only came to the PSG 3 years ago.

    I wonder could you tell me. I know that he is a very special player, so I should no t be surprised to learn that his guitar and its components are too.

    Many thanks for your kind attention.


  2. Dicky is certainly one of the premier steel players in the business. He’s about as pure and traditional as they come.
