I doubted whether this included the electrics, but - sure enough - one of the images shows the jack socket
Excellent value - heat added.

Cheers, that's a nice little Christmas gift.

I got one of these today. the cigar box is cardboard which wasn't a good start. probably my fault I just assumed it was wood.

it's cheap (obviously) but not cheerful. the electrics are really poor (obviously) and are not only quiet but it feeds back at any decent volume from the amp.

unamplified it sounds thin and rather dull. The slide is made from thin glass so adds no glassy tone, if anything it adds to the dull sound. You can buy a better slide but I doubt it'll add much to the guitar.

It's a good job it's cheap but I'm taking it back tomorrow and i think I'll make a decent one myself. I'm glad I tried it but it doesn't inspire me and would just sit in a corner.

hopefully others will enjoy it but for me it was pretty unenjoyable.

just my opinion of course.
