Does anyone make a PSG kit? I am looking to upgrade but I can't spend the money on a Carter etc. I would like a kit that has 4 knees and 3 floors. I don't do woodwork! I am very good at putting things together. I just want to stain it and play it! If you know, let me know. Would it be better to buy a Shawnee steel from Steel guitar works? I want a S-10 on a D-10 frame and I don't know where to get it.

Since I want a S-10 on a D-10 frame, what does a Lloyd Green Sho~bud go for?

Walker,
A used Sho~Bud L.D.G. seems to usually sell for somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,200 give or take a few dollars.

Walker,

I think that looking for an LDG Sho~Bud (or something equivalent) is a good idea. It will give you something to work with that you will like and it will sound and work great. Also, it will hold its value and thus be a better investment. Just my opinion.

Check with Ed Naylor. I thought he was offering kits at one time.

Hi Walker:

I agree with the LDG idea, or a Sho~Bud Pro I like one I recently purchased to leave set up at home.

I bought it for a very reasonable price and am very happy with the guitar.

There are many knowledgeable and friendly steel pickers on the Forum who can answer your questions as they arise, (Duane Becker is one in particular ) and by purchasing a good "name" guitar you have this wealth of experience available.

Regards.
Bill

Walker- I do sell "kits". Everyone has a different idea what a "kit" consist of.The bottom line is that I can supply you with any kind of part you need to build a Steel.The question one must decide is how much mechanical capabilities they have and the tools to do the job.With a 5 minute phone call I can answer all your questions and can supply a "kit" that fits your pocketbool.

Thanks for the info. I am starting to become one of those People who say "Price is no object". Within reason of course! My price is going to be around $1500. I will try to find a Sho~Bud ProII somewhere. Has anyone Priced a tele lately? The custom shop models go for $1800 and up, ( I have one.) I priced a Clarence White Tele the other day..sit down.....$3900.!!!! Only one raise, no knees or floors either! Kind of makes this fetish seem cheap! I am a songwriter, Tele playing, PSG wanna-be. The Maverick I traded some equipment for has served me well. It was equally satisfying and frustrating to sit down and play. Here's to more knees in Y2K!

Walker,
You should be able to find a excellent quality used steel in that price range.
Check out buy and sell here on the forum and also the swap shop at the Carter site. I saw several used steels in that price range at Norris Family Music in Mesquite on this past Monday. Good Luck
