Tootsie

I'm "Tootsie". I am a 3-string acoustic/electric cigar box guitar. My body is made from an old wooden salad bowl and a cutting board. A silver trivet covers my sound hole and my tailpiece is an old drawer pull. There are many ways to tune me for regular finger-style playing or I can rip up the blues with a slide. I have a pickup with wooden volume & tone knobs. My neck is hand-carved Maple with a Jatoba fretboard. I sound sweet played acoustically on the back porch or on stage with an amp. See my Etsy store, MelodditiesMusic at https://www.etsy.com/shop/MelodditiesMusic.
