Thanks for all the replys, I am working on getting a couple of pictures on here. This is one of Bobbe Seymours personal guitars so you know its in excellent condition. I bought it from him while he was single so it hasn't been scratched or thrown out in the yard. He may be able to tell you more about the guitar. SG

Steve, I received an email from Chuck McGill asking about the status of the guitar. He's interested but hasn't received a reply from you regarding this guitar. I've forward a copy of the email to you.

Thanks! Lori

This is the Zum Steel that I played at the Saluda show when I flew there in my Cessna 172 and nobody was there at the airport to pick me up. I waited for three hours then got back into the plane and flew over to and circled the big metal building that the show was going on in. I saw Herby Wallace going in the front door and to get his attention, I went into a shallow power dive and threw out a plastic water bottle (145 MPH) and when it hit the side of the building,I had his attention (and everyone elses)and I suddenly had airport trasportation!!! Had I not gotten his attention on that pass, the next move would have been to throw the Zum out. The guitar did play and sound great on that show and in needed no tuning either. I'd have probibly had to tune it if I'd have thrown it out for my last attention getting pass. Bobby Lee,don't even start to think I'm kidding this time, ASK HERBY!! .

Something seems fishy here. I bought this guitar from Bobbe in March. I just checked the serial number D1085102. I went to Bobbes store on a straight trip through from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to get this Zum from Bobbe at Steel Guitar Nashville. Fishy part is, the guitar only has 4 knees. Wonder what happened to the fifth? I could sure use a fifth if it was available. Bobbe, you never told me the story about the swimming pool.

I don't understand. Mark, are you saying that you have the guitar that Steve is selling? Do two Zums have the same serail number.

Bobbe, I wish you wouldn't talk in jokes so much. What's the scoop here? Who's Bruce?

I asked for a picture too and haven't heard from Steve. Bobbe I never knew you had a Zum for a personal guitar. I thought it was Sho-Buds and Emmons P/P's for your personal axes.

Frank, shows you what you missed, I owned the Zum I sold Steve and actually loved the guitar and wanted to keep it forever, but since I don't sell that brand, I felt it would be better if I sold it. Mr. Garrison being a great friend, I decided to sell it to him several years ago.
Bruce Zumsteg is the Paul Bigsby of the day.
I used this guitar to fly to several shows and it stayed in tune as good as could ever be expected. The Saluda show was a fun one, actually, after "Bombing" the building with the water bottle, I found out that Buddy Walker had a New car sitting at the airport waiting for me to use! All that Bombing and scaring poor Herby for nothing!
This guitar is one of the finest Zum guitars I have ever seen, I loved it.(and sold it for to little money). Mark, you are a lucky guy, this is a guitar I'll never forget, we had fun together!

Robert Seymour, (seriously)

All joking aside for a minute......What happened to the 5th knee lever? Is it available from Bobbe or Steve? If there was one, I could sure use it. The 85 part of the serial number indicates that it once had 5 levers. I'm confused

Bobby Lee, yes I have the ZumSteel indicated for sale by Steve Garrison. I bought it from Bobbe Seymour last month. I can only assume Steve sold it back to Bobbe, who in turn sold it to me. Questioning myself, I just checked the serial number again, and it is the same guitar we are talking about. When I was in Nashville, Bobbe also told me it was originally his guitar. I'm just wondering as to the whereabouts of the 5th lever.

Sorta' wondering about that myself! We didn't take it off cuz we don't need it.
Zum knee levers don't work on Emmons guitars very well and Emmons and Sho-Bud are our speciality. Possibly Steve meant to say four? Did I ever indicate that it had more or less than four when I sold it? I'll check out books,(records ) to see if we paid for four or five. I have done business with Steve G. for 18 years and I know him to be the greatest, most honest guy in the world. I do remember it having 5 on it when I played it though.The up knee only worked on the inside, C6th neck. Possibly it was removed because it was worthless to Steve and he meant to send it to whomever he sold it to, Interesting. Just think Mark, you never would have known if you hadn't read this forum.

I'm way too happy with the guitar Bobbe. You wont be getting it back any time soon, (unless I win the lottery and have Bruce build me a new one) Heck of it is, ya gotta buy a ticket first...... I'm happy with the guitar as I've told you in the past. Like you said though, in reading the Forum, it kind of caught my eye and when the serial number matched the one I got, I started wondering. Seems like Steve don't want to answer his post or return E-mails If it takes a swimming pool to achieve the level you have attained, maybe thats where I need to take my practice to. It's coming slowly, but it is coming. Not ready to play the Opry by a long shot yet. If you have a picture of yourself on this steel, I would like one.

Mark, you are so nice that I would like to offer you an up knee lever free for the guitar. If you wish to send it to us to do this work , we will order the kit immediately. Your patronage is greatly appreciated and I feel if you want a up knee, you should have one.
Don't worry about Steve not answering your e-mails, he is going through a lot right now, and deserves our prayers and understanding. A very great person that I have known for many years. He wouldn't have sold this guitar if he wern't in a personal crisis at the moment. When he is ready for another guitar, I'll do everything I can to get him back in the playing game. He is a good player.
Bobbe--------Thanks Mark!

I just received an e-mail from Bobbe and thought I would share it with all who have entertained this thread. This was sent from Bobbe to me thismorning. Also, yes I would like an up lever, but can't be without the guitar. If I had the kit, I'm quite sure I could install it. Enjoy the following e-mail I got from Bobbe....

I have added some great history on this great guitar that will be interesting in the future. On the trip home from Saluda, I got into a really bad storm and flew at treetop level dodging trees, radio antennas and cattle, at 135 MPH for many miles.I ended up landing in a farmers field and sleeping on the guitar case until the next morning when I took off on the highway in front of his house. I then immediately got trapped "on top" without an instrument rating, and spent the rest of the trip back to Nashville looking for a hole to come down through. luckily, one opened up right over an airport 10 miles from Nashville.I got back to Nashville just in time to finish up producing a voice over-dub on a female artist I had on a semi-major label. Can you imagine trying to explain why I was late and have them believe it?-------------------- I just said I had car trouble. See why I have a special love for this guitar! We had fun together! Take good care of it Mark, It has a very special , charmed life.

Still confused. Is this correct?

Steve Garrison is selling this ZumSteel.
Bobbe Seymour is the former owner.
Bobbe sold it to Mark last month.
Mark Kelchen owns it today.

How/why is Steve selling Mark's guitar?

Let me give it a shot:

Steve Garrison WAS selling this ZumSteel in February.

Bobbe Seymour is the former owner, who originally sold it to Steve.

Steve sold it back to Bobbe, because he's going through some difficult times. (maybe? ...this is the most hazy part for me)

Bobbe sold it to Mark Kelchen last month.

Mark Kelchen owns it today.

Mark really likes it and isn't selling it at all.

How'd I do?

Sounds like it's not for sale anymore. I'm closing this topic.
