Pedal steel guitars come in many types, and so do the pickups providing the unique sounds produced by them. Pedal steel guitars have between six to 12 strings and need pickups to match them. If a guitar has 10 strings, an eight-string pickup would not work on it. Instead, the owner would need to choose from among the many varieties of 10-string pickups to get the appropriate sound from the guitar.
