Through-body grommets as tailpiece
Aged brass sound hole rings
Aged brass hinges and latch on box

This guitar is made from a vintage House of Windsor Wild Life series cedar cigar box. This box has a picture of a seal on the front. From all the information I can find on the internet, this series came out in the 1950’s, but the label on the side of this box has a UPC barcode on it , and I believe these did not show up until the late 1960’s or early 70’s. Either way, this box makes a beautiful guitar.

    This diddley bow is well built and super fun to play it! Is amazing what one string can do. Also be aware that if the shipping is expensive (according to some of you) cut the inventor some slack his not going to send it to you in a small box. These are huge instruments (this one especially) a man gotta eat! And is very very well wrapped, also wanna thank him from the bottom of my heart because he even slip in some easy get started tabs along with a pick and copper slide. Thanks a million! Make more bass!

    As an independent craftsman, I price my items fairly and charge the going rate as stated by USPS to ship the large, bulky boxes necessary to get the guitars safely to their destination.

    The craftmanship is great, yet the shipping price was overwhelming, won't buy again due to excessive shipping.
