It's the Rocky Mountain Slide Tomichi Model (Middy Sized) It's 2 1/8" long 1 1/4" outer diameter, 3/" inner diameter. Their standard model (Blues Boy, like the ones they sell on C.B. Gitty) are 1 1/8" outer diameter. And, yes I actually made my living as a bass player for many years, I've only been playing CBG for about 6 months. http://www.rockymountainslides.com/Tomichi-Guitar-Slide.html

Yeah, did a double take on the slide myself.

Nice low end sound.

I'm hearing sounds of a bass player.

That spoon, that spoon, that spoonful.   Good all around.   Nice playing.   That slide is huge.
