A cheap instrument with a pedal steel sound could be a fretless
guitar. Take a cheap old electric guitar, pull the frets with
pliers, fill in the grooves with epoxy or wood putting, sand it and
restring with flatwound strings. Even cheaper would be to put a nut
raiser on the guitar, raise the bridge and get yourself a steel bar
like the lap steel players use. Now you have your very own lap
steel. Be sure to tune it like a lap steel. If you want the pedal
steel bending sound, leave the whammy bar on the guitar.
