Aluminum parts are machined from 6061 high compression solid billet, All other metallic parts are formed or machined stainless, no more plated mild steel parts anywhere. The inspiration for the development of this guitar was the MCI double necks that sounded so awesome and played flawlessly & friendly . A few modern details and updates have been added mainly because materials and processes have developed that make production of difficult parts possible & more functional.
A very important part of what makes this guitar sound so elegantly live is the genius of Mark Giles, the leading cabinet maker currently building high end pedal steel cabinets. The maple used in the Texas Pedal Steel cabinets are the most resonant hard rock maple available. Changer housing & key head are independent with a low profile live necks . A modern version changer assembly with 1/2 inch axle ads to stability & reduces friction which enhances tone. The changer blades are 3 raise and 3 lower with 6 position bell cranks. Cross shafts are 5/16 ” square stainless .
The pull rods are 3/32 ” polished tempered stainless. The pedals are designed so the whole set can be moved one whole position left or right without moving anything in the cabinet. The color availability of laminates changes from time to time , we stock several color cabinets & a few already built guitars. Most functional moving parts & assembly’s are updated treatments of original MCI designs which have stood the test of time in many other builders guita
