Diddley Bow


If you happen to have some spare parts, such an electric guitar pickup and an amp, you can forget about your instrument needing acoustic properties.


Jack White shows how a diddley bow (single string slide guitar) can be thrown together in just minutes – and then proceeds to play a few scorching licks.


With the same kind of DIY (Do It Yourself) inventiveness, and perhaps a couple of additional parts (tuning keys come to mind), it wouldn’t be too hard to create a multi string lap steel of similar construction.
