Re: roy smeck again

If its a Gibson Roy Smeck it will be 1930's if I remember rightly. I rebuilt one for someone about 6 months ago. Roy Smeck was a popular artist in the 30's, he joined Gibson as an endorse in 1934 with two signature guitars, the Roy Smeck Rio Grande was the better of the two models and featured fancy inlays in the fretboard. I have more info available if this is what you have. He had a reputation for getting artist guitars made so it could also be a Nick Lucas, B&D, Harmony, Montgomery Ward etc. Have a look at

Hi Haydn

You need to visit Brad's Page of Steel,
I have taken an insert from it:
Gibson also made steel guitars under the following brand names, as well as some special order models
Recording King:

Roy Smeck AB 104
Gibson discontinued their steel guitar line in 1968.
Comments: There is a publication on Gibson Production Numbers 1948-1979 which I have found to be help since you can judge the relative rarity of certain models. Certainly the fact that they made 15,000 BR-9 models is borne out by what I see on the vintage market. Everybody has a BR-9. Like Fender, sales of Gibson steels trailed off in the late 1960s and few were sold thereafter. As far as collectibility, the Gibson Ultratone and Century models are two of the fanciest lap steels ever made. The 1958 Ultratone with PAF (Patent Applied For) pickup is a rare bird, with less than 100 made. If you find one, be sure the pickup is an original PAF, since people have been known to replace them with another. PAFs are pulling $500 each on the vintage market.

Hope this helps

Ollie
