Hand-crafted C. B. Gitty "Spoon Slide"
Get your lovin' silver spoonful with these amazing hand-made slides!
There are many household items that can be used as a slide for your Cigar Box Guitar and we have certainly seen some creative options out there. But, these slides have to be one of the coolest examples of reusing every day items we have seen in a while. We love being able to offer unique hand-crafted items like this!
Each one is made out of a genuine silverplate spoon by master Jeweler, Ron Hall. Flattened out and bent to a cylinder and proudly stamped with our namesake, these spoons make great slides. Overall size for these sides can vary, but will be at least 1 1/4" (31.75mm) long with an inside diameter of approximately 11/16" (17.46mm) They can be further bent (using pliers and cloth or something to keep from scratching the metal) to accommodate fingers of all sizes.
