 This puppy wails!!!!     I typically build cigar box ukuleles and have a few nice ones on deck, but thought I'd try my hand at a slide guitar.  Not too shabby, this little dude kicks it!!  I wanted to attach a you tube video but I'm still not sure how to do that on e-bay. If you go to you tube or google video and type in Sonny Daze 2 String Diddley Bow, you can see this instrument in action.  Also, I can forward some MP3's to you if you go to ask seller a question and request the sound clips.
This instrument is non fretted with super high action to accommodate slide action playing.  The authentic wine bottle slide is included with this one.  I tuned this one D g.  Not sure if that is open D or open G tuning but is sounds good.  The neck and tail piece are set up as two separate pieces internally  and braced below the box top to allow greater resonance.
The box top is fit tight to the body, but you can pop the hinges and clasp and  slide the top aside if you want to modify this to make it electric or use it as a piggy bank.    The head design is one of a kind.  Not sure if I will duplicate it on any other instruments as this is the first one of these 2 stringers that I have built, but I like it so it might show up later.  The neck is hard maple, the fret inlay is purple heart to match the finish on the Sancho box,  I almost forgot,,  the bridge is a floater like on my other instruments, so you can position it to your liking. %
