  • Features

Corner has received several requests for inexpensive, entry-level pedal steel guitars (after all, we are in Nashville). We’re happy to offer these student-style steel guitars from Fessenden. 

 

The Fessenden 8-string, three-pedal guitar is a smart introductory instrument. This 3-pedal design is perfect for students or for pro musicians looking for an easy, inexpensive transition to pedal steel guitar. Compared to traditional 10-string instruments with multiple pedals and knee-levers, the Fessenden 8-string is extremely lightweight, and simple to set up and learn. 

 

The guitar features an all-hardwood body finished in red burl. One George L double-coil pickup produces traditional, full-range steel guitar tone. Fretboard markers are Fessenden's standard longhorn pattern. Rear legs simply fold up for packing (like a card table).

 

Why We Like It

Jerry Fessenden is a veteran player and builder and one of the few steel guitar makers to offer true student models. This 8-string is a simple, no-frills instrument, ideal for musicians who want to learn the instrument, or double on steel without making a big investment.
