You have probably already seen many glasses, metal, or ceramic slides being used by guitarists. But how many times have you seen a guitarist slide their guitar smoothly using a gorgeous, blue handcrafted glass slide that reminds you of old town Mississippi? If you haven't, you must check out Dunlop's unique Blues bottle guitar slide!

To truly and fully appreciate the beauty of this stunning blue guitar slide by Dunlop, we need to take a trip down memory lane to pre-Depression era Mississippi in the United States of America. This was the time and place where legendary Blues music took shape and started gaining the love and appreciation of audiences. Back then, master Blues musicians would make glass guitar slides out of glass medicine bottles. This age-old technique is respected and carried forward by Dunlop into the modern era, as a result of which we get to witness this remarkable guitar slide.

This Blues Bottle Slide is designed and manufactured with absolute precision and attention by Dunlop. Each slide is individually and carefully hand-blown out of premium quality Pyrex glass, which is known for its durability. This unique procedure gives each Blues bottle slide a seamless finish, which as we know is of great importance to every guitarist. The seamless finish of this glass slide will help you slide between frets with ease. Also, since this slide is made out of glass, it produces a clear, crisp, and bright tone. 

While Dunlop has a wide range of guitar slides covering multiple sizes and materials such as glass, metal, and ceramic, it is important to understand the kind of sound as well as size that is perfect for you. This Blues bottle slide is 70mm in length and has an outside diameter of 28mm. Keeping this guitar slide's dimensions in mind, it is an ideal fit for anyone with a ring size of 12.

Another unique feature of this Blues bottle slide is that it has weighted, closed ends to it. This design feature helps in providing substantial balance. This slide weighs about 1.3 ounces and hence is not too heavy to slip on your finger while playing. While most glass slides in the market are transparent, this one comes in an eye-catching shade of blue, which immediately transports one back to the era when Blues players used medicine bottles to slide their guitars. This slide comes with a regular wall thickness, which makes it compatible to use with both acoustic as well as electric guitars.

This one-of-a-kind guitar slide is a fitting tribute to Blues music and will surely make a statement wherever you take it. If you love playing Blues, listening to Blues, or simply want to take a trip down memory lane to the origin of modern-day Blues, there is no better guitar slide than the Dunlop 278 Blues Bottle Slide!
