Hi all. Im passing on the info that Clem Schmitz has decided to re-enter the p/p repair-setup arena. You may remember him from his stores in Mpls,Mn.and Nashville,Tn.
As many pros here can attest to, Clem gives excellent and quick service.
He can be reached at 615-333-9063.
Welcome back Clem, and I wish you all the best. If I can assist you in any way, dont hesitate to call on me.

the tighter you hold on to something, the quicker it slips thru your hands.
Theres enough work for everybody out there, kinda like Nashville; but a select few try to monopolize it...not me though

Clem helped a lot of players in his days running the Steel Guitar Emporium. I used to look forward to hitting Minneapolis and getting to hang in Clem's shop. He sold me my first Emmons, and it took him a long time to get me away from my Sho~Bud!!

I'd like to know what he did with my S10 5x4 MSA. I still have all the paper work. He took it on consignment when he was in Mpls and then went to NV.

The serial number is: 1C2196. If anyone knows it's whereabouts. I concider it stolen, since it was neither paid for or returned to me.

I bought my first real steel, a Pro I, and my Webb from Clem Back in 78. Clem was a real pleasure to do business with, and he gave me a lot of help when I was just starting, even came out to hear me play. If you read this, Clem, the Webb is still kicking some serious butt!

What a delight to hear Clem is back! Clem always helped me so much for years and what a super Emmons p/p repairman--one of the best!! Great memories of the old Pedal Steel Guitar Emporium on E. Lake Street in MPLS...I will get in touch soon...

I hung at both of the Emporium's (in Minneapolis and Mt. Juliet.) in the late 70's and early 80's. That's where I met Mike Cass, Russ Pahl and quite a few other players, too. Clem is a great push-pull mechanic. I bought my first Emmons D-10 from Clem in Minneapolis in '77 and my first LeGrande from him in Mt. Juliet in 81 or 82.

My wife told me he called my house a couple of weeks ago, but I was out of town and didn't get to talk to him.

My best,
