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.
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.
