Not exactly, thats a pretty dangerous method to do so.

Buying yourself a glass slide is much more effective and will end up being cheaper
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

Use a glass cutter to mark the end of the neck, then heat up the bottle, then put it in cold water, it should break up to the place you scored to neck, then rub the edge on the sidewalk to make it smooth.

why will it be cheaper to buy? i already have beer bottles and tools, such as a glass cutter and a blowtorch to heat it,plus i think it would be cool to have my own rather than shop bought

A trip to the ER is very expensive. A glass slide is fifteen bucks. If you know what you are doing, by all means have at it. They're your hands.

if you have the proper tools making one is very easy. Just remember to completely sand it and don't leave the inside sharp.

A fellow UG'er by the name of forsaknazrael sells bottleneck slides. His most expensive one is $12.50 USD (the green one) and his cheapest one is $10 USD for the clear one. This will save you more time than creating one yourself. Here's the link to buy them:

But if you know what you're doing, make one.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.
