I'm sorry I can't easily respond to comments left on youtube. I try! You can also direct questions to my Facebook page Evolution Stoneware Pottery or email me through my website www.EvolutionStoneware.com. This is a demo of a ceramic cigar box style guitar (CBG style) that I made out of stoneware clay. The clay guitar body & slide were sculpted, fired to 1945F, engobe coloring was added, and they were fired again to 2232F in 1 of my electric kilns. The guitar body is modeled on one of my organic seed pod type designs. The neck is oak. It's tuned to A, D. This video was made for you by Janis Wilson Hughes, owner of Evolution Stoneware Pottery.

I played this through an outboard piezo preamp box that I built yesterday, into an effects unit, and into my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe tube amp with a power soak unit I built years ago. The tune is an improvisation written by me yesterday.
