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. 5.2 oz.
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.
Our guitar steels are made of solid stainless steel
• Resists nicks and scratches far better than a plated bar.
And if it ever should get a nick or scratch, it can be buffed out, unlike a plated bar.
• No plating to wear off.
Any plated bar will wear down, and people end up replacing them. A stainless bar will remain as good as new indefinitely — outlasting a drawer full of worn out plated bars.
• An incredible value at its price.
Solid stainless steel bars typically cost double the price of the SP or RR steel.
(Prior to 2011 our SP and RR steels were made of brass, and chrome plated.)
