1955 Bigsby Quad Pedal Steel

Bird's eye shot.

Note the scale difference...pretty cool...the price, not so much.

Seems to be in great shape.

It's actually one tenth of the price of one of Bigsby's electric mandolins that was floating around guitar shows last year...maybe Cream City had it in their inventory, I don't quite recall.

Love it!

If only I could play pedal steel...and had the moolah...

Haha!

Two big ifs!

6

Dang that's like $5K per neck.

7

I wonder who ends up with stuff like this. A hardcore/pro pedal steel player, or a guitarist/collector who is a Bigsby enthusiast? I would think more likely the latter.

Isn't Deke involved somehow with the restoration of Speedy West's Bigsby steel guitar?

11

Deke owns it.

– Jonathan A. Sipes......maker of aluminum dust.

He also owns the Bigsby sign from off the manufacturing plant.

Clearly, Deke is the Indiana Jones of the guitar world.
