AGP #362 - “Diddy Mahog”
(1 String Baritone Diddley Bow)
Scale: 736.6mm / 29 inches
String: .034NW Tuned B or lower.
Basically a clone of the middle string of one of my earlier and favourite 3 string CBG Player, AGP #131 – “Rocky Mahog”.
The Neck is Grey Ironbark, the Fretboard is Tasmanian Oak, a BQLZR White Single Coil Pickup to Humbucker is split with a 3 Way Switch and wired through Vol & Tone Pots to the Output Jack. Single Coil=4.3k, Humbucker=8.6k, Combined=4.3k.

Nice one AGP.  You also continue to expand my awareness of natural timber usage! Thank you.

"Thanks Dave", Tassie Oak does sound and look exotic, and although 'Bones' would probably disagree, I personally find it a bit of a difficult timber to work with, particularly when cutting Fret Slots, however our local hardware mob has a plentiful and varied supply of the stuff, and its cheap, did think about 2 strings ala Erasmo style but opted for my fave 3 string configuration.  :-)

Does look inviting AGP. Tasmanian Oak sounds so exotic to a Duluthian. I’d want two strings though.

"Thanks" Bones, Rev & 'UJ', it was just a quick long scale build to add to the other eleven shorter scale Diddley Bows I have.  :-)

Good looker.  I would like to take it for a slide.
