Richard Saulpaugh Pedal Steel Restoration - A luthier, magician, and craftsman.

Great at pedal steel restoration, a luthier, and a cool guy.  Based out of Lewisville, NC with a lake-view from his workshop.  Oh, did I mention he’s my father too?


Check out these beautiful guitars he hand-built…

(Believe it or not, they play/sound as good as they look)

Hand-built semi hollow guitar

A beautiful hand-built blue electric guitar, with flaming top


Three custom, hand-built guitars in finished pose side by side.


He spruced up this 8-string double neck lap steel real nicely.  It made it much more enjoyable to play having: hand-made bone nuts, custom copper-shielding in pickup housing, and a nice old deep cleaning.
