Bob Tuttle Steel Guitar

Playing Country Music for Over 70 Years!

I began my career in the music business in 1950 when I first started taking lessons on the steel guitar.

We moved to Houston when I was offered a job at Gilley’s Club…

Playing a Little Buddy Student Model

One afternoon I was at a friend’s house, foolin’ around with this Little Buddy student model steel. We recorded these two songs just to see how it sounded. You be the judge.

Gladstone Album 1973

Fun Projects

Black 10 String Lap Steel

Here’s one of my past projects.  It is a ten string lap steel with a keyless tuning head.

2×4 Slide Guitar Project

I’m sure you have heard it said, “Oh, he could make a 2×4 with strings sound good.”  Well, I decided to build a 2×4 lap steel just for fun.

Lap Steel Project

This is a project I started back in 2003. I began with two nice pieces of Honduran mahogany, two inches thick.
