Thanks Mike, I will have to look up Don Warden. Looks like he is playing a console lap there as it looks like he is standing up. I mentioned this for the folks that may be considering building lap steels. How did this guy and Don Helms get these guitars to get that true country sound? What tuning did these fellows use or I should say tunings. OK, lets look or listen to something else. I am a very big fan of Irwin Prescott. Irwin had a great voice and was kinda big here in Northern Ontario back in the 60"s. Does anyone know who is playing the pedal steel on this song? I would like to know.

I haven't been on in a looong time. Sorry about that. To start with, there was family issues that took up my spare time and thinking. Then after that was getting better, along came several orders for steels and I have been too busy to socialize online.
I am currently putting 014 together and after that it is 013, which got postponed. Then there will be 015 and 016 after that. Lord knows, if orders will come in while I am finishing up those ones.

If you all care to take a look, I have been active on Facebook on BenRom Pedal Steel Guitars page
Not getting any younger either. Oh well, that's life!

Paul, I did answer the email you sent me. Hope you are well and building away!
Best wishes
