I own an old Sho-Bud volume pedal that I am convinced belonged to the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. My mother actually used to live in Texas not far from Vaughan's home, and her boyfriend at the time retrieved the pedal from the back of his truck (it either fell out or he stole it, i'm not 100% on that). My whole family swears it really belonged to him. What do you guys think? If it is really his, what do you think it would be worth?
By the way, it still works.

Well it won't be worth much as you can't prove it's his, but you should keep it if it's really his!

stevie never once used a volume pedal, on stage or on recordings. if it was a wah, that might be a different story, but i doubt that that's his volume pedal, sorry.

If you can prove it then cool, but if not then it probably wouldn't be worth much

1. I think that you are going to jail VERY VERY soon son! Behave!
2. It's very stupid to say on the internet forum that you have stolen properity

release a song identical to his with a different title and you'll see that being dead doesn't mean you can't be sued lol

Its a neat story but stolen=bad Karma. I bought a guitar I strongly suspected was stolen when I was very young. My favorite guitar was stolen 23 years later. Throw it in the dumpster.

Go to Stevie's grave and ask someone there that you would like to return it and one of your relatives had stolen it many years back.

Mail it to Jimmie Vaughan, since he owns basically all of Stevie's gear now.

Thanks everyone. I will cherish it, and I apologize to the spirit of Stevie if he did steal it. Actually I should update what i said earlier- It was my aunt's husband, not my mom's boyfriend who got the pedal- I just called her a minute ago and asked about it. He helped Stevie move to a different house in Texas, which explains how he had access to the pedal.

Also, I'm not gonna cop any of Stevie's licks when I play.

the Sho-Bud is the volume 'footswitch' for the Sho-Bud lap steels, no?

hehe, I would revise it more, and say he probably gave it to him for helping him move. I wouldn't mention it was stolen, from a dead guitar legend, on a guitar forum, lol. And why not cop any of his licks, that's what blues players have been doing for years! It's not the licks, it's what you do with them.

Don't worry about stealing licks, they're all written by Satan anyway. When you improv blues, and just stop thinking and play, that's the devil playing through you. When you play a lot of blues, the devil may work other dark magic through you, mainly to do with loose women, drink and drugs. It's a risk I'm prepared to take.
