Steel Guitar Break

This was at the Kansas State Fair some years ago with WC Edgar.


This was at the Kansas State Fair some years ago with WC Edgar. The guitar is a P/P Emmons that was made out of mahogany especially for Bobbe Seymour, who was trying to get a warm jazz sound, like a Gibson Byrdland guitar. Mahogany is soft, though, and some of the parts underneath began to pull up and I had to drill a few new holes and relocate them. Worked fine. I got it from Dan Tyack and played it for 20 years or so and then sold it to Bobbe, who then completely re-did it and sold it for a pretty penny.
