George's Pedal Steel Guitar Web Site

Taking the Bud apart or which one of us is going out the window first

The fret boards are removed and the necks are just sitting on the guitar. Nothing has been done as of yet. When the wife happened to see it in this condition I didn't know wether she was going to throw me out the window for spending the money on it or throw the guitar out for junk. It all worked out in the end. This guitar had a George L pickup on the E9th neck and instead of having the neck machined out to accept the size of it, the neck was filed out. When I got the neck off I brought it into our machine shop and milled out the opening to get it squared up.
