'The Triangle'

A San Latano Requiem Maduro cigar box has become the body of a really cool three-string electro/acoustic slide guitar.  I chose a full fretted red oak neck and maple fingerboard for the strings to dance over.  A walnut laminate covers the headstock scarf joint, and Corian serves for the nut and saddle.  Because of the inverted bevel design of the box top, the string action rides a little higher than usual to accommodate it.  Black tuners were chosen to compliment the box color.  It's a very basic design, nothing wild or strange, but it works very well with a slide . . . sounds good and fun to play.
