Review on Hot Rodded Acoustic Slide Guitar

Up for sale is an Acoustic Slide Guitar. The guitar was initially found in an abandoned state but has been restored carefully over almost 4 weeks. The guitar was initially a Spanish style guitar but has been turned into a Hawaiian (Slide) style guitar.

-The entire Paint Job (Blue on the top and sides and White on the Back) has been done using Multiple Coats of Automotive Paint and Lacquer (more durable than conventional finishes).
-The Neck has a Raw Wood Finish with a Light Relic treatment and has a Rosewood Fingerboard with a Removed 20th Fret.
-The Nut and Bridge have been Modified for Slide Style Playing and are Hand Carved and Shaped from Pine Wood.
-The Guitar has been given a Hand-Cast Aluminum Pick-guard which has two motifs (tic-tac-toe and the suites of cards) hand painted on it.
-The White Back has a Vinyl Decal of an 8 Ball on it.
-The Headstock has a REAL ART Motif hand-painted onto it.
-There are Multiple Hand-Painted Motifs on the Top of the Guitar all drawn from the Players perspective in a Slide Position.
-The Top has a "binding" which has been made by scraping the paint off in those areas for a rustic look.
-The Truss Rod no longer functions as it is Unnecessary for a Slide Guitar.

The instrument looks great and sounds very deep and mellow.
