I'm giving away a very special guitar next Friday...Oh yeah, and I just totally interviewed Lita Ford about her cigar box guitar.
This is a fun newsletter. Scroll thru the whole thing!
The giveaway guitar: I recently built a strange 4-string lap steel guitar as a cool tutorial for the guys at C. B. Gitty and Cigar Box Nation. The instrument came out great and sounds really cool, too. Here's the link for my article on how you can build your own.
Since I have so many guitars in my collection already, I've decided to give it away to a subscriber of my email list. If you don't get my email newsletter, sign up on the homepage of www.ShaneSpeal.com. Next week on Friday the 13th, I'll draw a winner and ship this out to them.
I should do more of these contests...
Guitar Slides for Cigar Box Guitar Players...
Many of you have asked me to get these exclusive Medicine Bottle Stubby Slides back in. I'm still searching everywhere for the original manufacturer. In the meantime, I've secured some new-old stock slides and put them back on my site. By the way, you can shop for my guitar slides directly at www.StubbySlide.com.
