Most retail music stores carry the run of the mill chrome and glass slides, but here at Guitarley’s I wish to offer you slides of the highest quality! I have recently been signed up to be an authorized dealer of the world’s greatest guitar slide, “The Rock Slide!”
RockSlides have unparalleled sustain.Why so much sustain? Because the heart of The Rock Slide is the solid brass rod that is CNC carved to fit your finger. This particular brass formula has a lot of nickel content which is the best for tone, sustain and plating. The walls are thick and get thicker towards the end of the slide. We intentionally added a tone ring at the fingertip end which adds mass and helps secure your finger. Like a Hawaiian tone bar cuts through the mix with more weight and mass, so does The Rock Slide. NOT JUST A PIECE OF PIPE.
The first batch of these should be arriving at Guitarley’s in a week or two, so stay tuned for when you can test drive one of these beauties! Check out all of their great products…

This was my big project for last week! A new customer brought in his USA Fender Jazz Bass (5 string) that was difficult to play due to a strange warp in the neck. He also wanted a fretless bass to add to his arsenal and already enjoyed his other fretted guitars. So it was decided to convert this guitar, sanding out the warp in the process. I removed the plastic factory nut and frets, filled fret slots with ebony, sanded everything nice and smooth, did a custom bone nut, threw on some nice flat wounds, and set it up nice! The guitar looks and plays great now and finally has a purpose for its owner. For more photos of the bass before and after, and other projects, check out my Facebook page by clicking on the photo.
