The can-o-caster

A totally unique slide guitar has been built by Operations Manager, John Colthorpe using an Intercoat can and a child's electric guitar. 

The soundholes are plug drainers and the string height is set with a Haiwiian nut extension. The inside was constructed from MDF panels to give support and in the process John set fire to it 3 times with his power tools.

Set in open F# tuning ( F# Bb Db F# Bb Db - as the tension is limited)  the "instrument" is fully functioning electrically and John gave a brief Blues demonstration at a Sales Meeting to a generally bewildered audience.
