Tucketts Preferred Panetelas

I was given this extra cool Tucketts Preferred Panetelas cigar box from the early 1920’s. It was a bit to small for a good 3 string cigar box guitar and not deep enough for an amp, so I new right away this would make a pretty cool Diddley Bow.

I added some antique brass corners and a couple antique brass sound holes to round out the look.

With a 23 inch scale length and a G string it has a very unique sound which is deep and kind of dirty which I was pleased with its original 1920’s sound.

I didn’t make this for any specific customer, so if  anyone is interested drop me a line and I will hook you up.
