A unique 3-string handmade guitar made to be played with a slide. Easily played lap style or standing up with a guitar strap (not included). Tuned G-D-G. Fret markers on side of the neck only. Your audience will see the blank face of the neck and watch in open-mouth amazement at your slide antics, believing it's only your amazing ears and muscle memory that makes it possible for you to play such a bone-simple instrument so nimbly, it sounds as if you're playing six strings.  

Back and sides of the body are a standard brownie pan and top is 1/4" plywood. Electronics include a single coil pickup, a volume knob, and an output jack. Vintage strat-style tuners. Nut is threaded rod and bridge is aluminum angle. Top features vintage Sci-fi movie advertisements. Body and nut given relic treatment.

This instrument is capable of screaming, crying, wailing, and singing.  It can sound gritty or sweet, thin or fat, aggresive or laid-back. It depends on how hard you play and how your amp is set up. The piezo pickup will pick up not just the sounds of the strings, but the top, too. All of the percussive sounds when you're tapping the top or just running your fingers across it will come out of your amp.
It's loud enough unplugged for you to hear yourself in the bedroom without annoying people in the other room.

For players just entering the world of slide guitar, it's a great entry point. It's ideal for learning slide guitar, very capable of playing common slide licks that would apply to open G, A, E, and D.  It's affordable, it's simple enough to not get lost on, and it just plain sounds good. For players who already play slide and are searching for something different, you have found it. The freedom of 3 strings and none of them being a major or minor third makes playing along with the chords so much simpler. The licks you already know transfer well. It's like going from driving a car to a go cart: it's more fun and it's easier to control.
