The Commodore lap steel guitar was made in the 1960's in Japan by the Sakai Mokko Company. It is a clone of the American made Fender Deluxe 6 model.

The Sakai Mokko Company produced steel guitars for various brands such as Commodore and Jedson.

1960's Commodore / Jedson

This steel guitar became popular because of its use in recordings and concert by rock guitarist David Gilmour of the group Pink Floyd. He played a Jedson lap steel identical to this Commodore.

It features dual single coil pickups, an aluminum printed fretboard, and is finished in a classic Fender style blond.
