This is a 4-string slide guitar about 35 inches lomg with an 26 inch scale. The sound box is made from a wooden Finest Quality Wawel Chocolate box.

The neck is shaped from red oak and stained to match the color of the box. I shaped the headstock in an attempt the reflect the little gold decorations on the corners of the chocolate box. The fingerboard, tailpiece, bridge and nut are all made from a natural color oak. The fingerboard was notched out at fret positions and the notches were filled with a contrasting color of wood filler. Brass screws not only hold the fingerboard in place, but also mark the key fret locations. The bridge is mounted on a pair of bolts and its height is adjustable. Several coats of laquer were applied to the box and neck,

Even though the action is low enough that it can be played with the fingers, this guitar is intended to be played with a slide, so I'm including a stainless steel slide.

Some sound samples are available at

Please ignore my crappy playing and recording skills.

Payment can be made by check, cash, money order or paypal transfers.
