I built this fretless cigar box guitar to be used with a bottle neck slide. The picture of the old mountain man is hand routed, and has black walnut dots in the guitar neck. The bridge is black walnut with a peizo pickup underneath. The f sound holes are hand cut I used brass screws on the side of the neck for fret location it has a good blues sound to it. I also hand cut the bottle neck slide from an old wine bottle.
