Comments about Hinkler The Electric Blues Box Slide Guitar with Guitar Slide, Instruction Book and Audio CD:

I gotta tell ya . For the money , this thing is a whole lotta fun I've been wanting a cigar box guitar for a while now. No this isn't something you're gonna play at Carnegie Hall but for the money it is quite substantial . Also a great tool to use if you are just learning to play slide and getting used to slide techniques. P.S, Because of the piezo pickup , you can sing through the soundholes and use it as a microphone when plugged into an amp. Had my wife on the floor laughing.

Comments about Hinkler The Electric Blues Box Slide Guitar with Guitar Slide, Instruction Book and Audio CD:

This is basically a toy, but a fun toy. It's probably too fragile for kids under eight years old or so but would be a great learning toy to whet the appetites of anyone older [including adults]. The electric output is too weak to be usable without a preamp [or old stereo with a phono input].
Minor assembly is required; I needed to ream out the tailpiece holes and CAREFULLY use vise-grip pliers to fit the string grommets into the tailpiece. Comes with a glass slide and CD which is a nice touch. It's also an interesting conversation piece and attractive curio, so worth the purchase price for that alone.

Absolutely killer little cigar box guitar

By Ryan

from Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Comments about Hinkler The Electric Blues Box Slide Guitar with Guitar Slide, Instruction Book and Audio CD:

I love this thing. I got it for about 2/3 price after cashing in some backstage pass points. I would have gladly paid full price however. If you don't know much about guitar setups and intonation, you might struggle with this. It's a matter of setting everything just right, and getting the string spacing at the bridge and nut set properly as well as the placement of the bridge so your 12th fret note is the same as the open note on each string. Would HIGHLY recommend. Yes, it's not a real cigar box, but the sound isn't much different. It's still a very solid construction with solid maple neck that runs from the ferrules behind the bridge all the way to the tuners, and the cigar box is built around it. I've got it strung up to A-E-A "open A" which is quite a bit more tension than the recommended open G (G-D-G) tuning, and it's very stable. STRETCH the strings after installing and setting this up, or else it won't hold tune.
All in all a great product for the price, and great for blues jamming.

    Comments about Hinkler The Electric Blues Box Slide Guitar with Guitar Slide, Instruction Book and Audio CD:

    Mostly playable within the 2nd to 7th frets. Even when in "perfect" tune, it can sound out of tune
