Here's my first diddly bow. I can't believe how great this thing plays!

This was built in June-July 2014. My latest build was a six string using a take off from a cheep Telecaster. I don't do many per year and prefer doing kits which C>B>Gitty supplies more than I have built. I heve several I am working on now.

Welcome to the addiction.

This is one of my early additions to my musical instrument string collection. I made it with a root end piece of bamboo that I grew. I had it for flute making. This didley bow now belongs to Paris James, a local blues legend.
