    Just ordered a new slide from Taylor guitars.
    It's made from ebony. It's super light in weight and won't fret out on a guitar that's not set up for slide. Mine is 11/16" in diameter, however they offer different diameters for whatever size you need.
    Cool that they are made from scap and are of high grade scrap at that! Less waste is a good ideal.
    Will post pics when it arrives along with a review of how it sounds. Expecting that it will not be very warm or long on sustain, but a cool piece to add to the collection. :thumb::cool:

    I’m a big fan of the Ebony Project and have wanted one of those ever since I heard about them. There’s no place near me that actually carries them and I really need to try it on my finger before I buy it. I will grab one at some point. I hope you enjoy it and please post your impressions of it as you get used to it
