The Diddley Bow is a traditional one-string guitar played with a slide.

This diddley bow was made using a red, paper-covered Patargas cigar box. The neck is solid cherry with thirteen fret positions marked along its top edge for easy of note-finding.

I'm including a stainless steel slide so you can play in the traditional way.

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.
