Workshop Spotlight - Diamond Bottlenecks glass guitar slides with Ian McWee

I have known Ian McWee of Diamond Bottlenecks for many years. When I first became interested in slide guitar, I was reading an issue of Guitarist Magazine and a review of some beautiful glass slides caught my eye. After reading I realised these were made local to me, and knew I had to pay a visit. This must have been over 15 years ago now, and Ian was as enthusiastic about his slides and slide guitar in general as he is today.

I popped in to see our friends at Diamond Bottlenecks today to collect a batch of slides, and see how the collection is coming along for the HUGE batch we're taking to The Guitar Show in Feb. Wow...they are looking so good! I love these things and what DB do, true masters of their craft! We also had a sneaky preview of the latest slide heading out to DB endorsed artist, Mark Knopfler. It was a lovely milky red coloured 'Ultimate' model with his recording studio logo beautifully adorning it! He's a lucky man!
I chose a few for stock and one in particular I personally love, I've even given it a nickname! 

Meet 'Baileys'! For obvious creamy colour reasons...
