Advent Time Diddley Bow Build

Why? Basic art therapy I suppose… and because I have a ton of boxes. This little one along with a 98 cent Menards yardstick called my name. Got a load of old acoustic wound strings and such, and again, if you build thoughtfully using the right string and don’t torque it up too much even a solid yardstick errr… half a yardstick… can work for a neck on a one-string slide guitar and quite small Montecristo box.

So here ’tis!

Total Length: 18.25 inches  Depth: 3.25 in.  Width: 3.75 in.  Scale bridge to nut: 15.50 in.

Appx. a light gauge wound G tuned to a C -and I’m lovin’ this little thing!

Slide only, no pickup.

I already recorded a Christmas tune on my paint stirrer diddley titled Nine-Six -for Grrr Records and when it’s ready they will post it as a free download via GrrrRecords.Com

When I finished the Montecristo I immediately got inspired and wrote another Christmas tune (title is Snowflakes) which will be included in this year’s free download of Cigarbox Guitar Christmas 2019 -along with a slew of other holiday songs, over at CigarBoxNation.Com That will be available right before Christmas.

Hope you’re enjoying Advent 🙂

As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
