This instrument is a great affordable way of getting into a real Vintage Sho Bud pedals steel without the doubled price tag.
It is an early red refinish, It was most likely the same colour originally but tiny areas of overspray can be seen on the edges of the some metal fittings.
Generally E9 tuning setups on these instruments but research indicates that there are many personalised ideas and custom variations possible.
Originally purchased from Top Gear Music in Denmark St London in the 1970’s and brought to Australia and used professionally for decades until being stored for at least the past 20 years. This Sho Bud will require a fine tuneset-up but without doubt be once again able to deliver those magical sounds that Sho Bud instruments area famous for.
