1950s Selmer Pro-Electric lap steel


1950s Selmer Pro-Electric body with new vintage style Kluson tuners, hand wound Baytone pickup and hand built replacement scratchplate, bridge, tailpiece and nut.


Probably early 1950s, this guitar was just a shell when it arrived – the only remaining parts were the tuners which unfortunately were too far gone to save.

To give this guitar a new lease on life, the missing scratchplate, string tailpiece, bridge and nut have been replaced with hand made brass parts. A hand wound Baytone pickup has been installed along with CTS pots, vintage cloth push back wiring and Sprague orange drop capacitor so that it sounds as good as it looks.
