COBALT BLUE Ultimate Stubby Bottleneck Slide
In my drive to push the art further, I am proud to introduce the ultimate traditional bottleneck slide for cigar box guitar, handmade by myself. You're going to love these!
I was continually disappointed by shorter bottleneck slides. Either they were too crude or they just didn't have the feel that I needed. I bought the diamond saws and created special grinding setup specifically to make the best cigar box guitar bottleneck glass slide.
Introducing the Ultimate Cigar Box Guitar Bottleneck Slide, handcrafted one-at-a-time by me, Shane Speal. Each slide is created from an actual wine bottle, cut on a diamond saw, leaving 1 3/8" of perfect playing space above the collar. I then carefully finish each slide polished end, advancing to a 2000 grit polish. There's no rough ends on these. These sparkle in the light.
Perfectly balanced and small enough to fit on the top half of your playing finger. Unlike other bottleneck slides, mine retain the bottleneck collar for increased mass and sustain.
I proudly offer the very first run of COBALT BLUE slides. Each slide is packaged in its own burlap mojo back and shipped in a protective cardboard tube. An autographed cigar box guitar tuning guide is included with each order...along with a couple other surprises.
TOTAL LENGTH: 1 7/8" long
PLAYABLE LENGTH: 1 3/8" (Playing length was based on the Shane Speal King Slide.)
Collar end: ring size 8-9
Open end: ring size 10-11
Each slide comes with self stick felt for perfect sizing.
Shipped in a protective cardboard tube.
