Our guitar steels are designed by musicians with the special demands of today's playing styles in mind. They offer unique design features not found on any other bars, including cutaway ends for improved control, and a semi-bullet tip which facilitates movement across the strings.
SP4 - The basic steel: the same familiar shape many players have used for years.
SP2 - It's design suggested by Peter Grant, the extra mass (for tone) and double cutaway (for control) make this a versatile bar for various styles of resophonic and lap steel guitar.
SP1 - The original Shubb-Pearse Steel designed by John Pearse is favored by many 8-string lap steel and Hawaiian guitarists for its extra length (3 3⁄8") and cutaway bullet tip.
