Buddy Emmons Collection

Buddy Emmons (1937-2015) was a preeminent pedal steel guitar player whose versatile style graced countless recordings. His early career was spent as a stage performer with Little Jimmy Dickens, Ernest Tubb, and Ray Price. His list of studio credits, covered a wide variety of styles and genres, everything from Ray Charles to George Strait. His pedal steel innovations included adding two "chromatic" strings to the instrument as well as the "split pedal" set up. He was an integral part of both the Sho-Bud and Emmons Steel Guitar companies. Gruhn Guitars is proud to present a selection of Buddy's personal instruments for sale.
