Diddley Bow For Sale

Here is my latest creation!

Price for the UK : £35 including postage,

Worldwide : £45 including postage.

This one is made from an 80 year old piece of a curtain rail support from my neighbours house. I gave the wood a rag wash with some Willow Green fencing paint for a different look, which I’m really pleased with!

The measurements of the wood are: 3cm Height x 5cm Width x 76cm Length
There is a home made piezo pickup and a 6.35mm jack socket in the one ounce tobacco tin. It has a slotted screw for the nut and a threaded bolt for the bridge, giving a scale length of 22.5″.
As usual, any guitar string will work with this Diddley Bow and you can make use of broken guitar strings with this scale length!

I’ll post a video of how it sounds in a day or so!
