Member of the Cigar Box Guitar Revolution
Since 2016 I have been building quality instruments based on the original cigar box guitar. These are one of a kind, hand made in Tasmania from local and reclaimed timbers whenever possible. These are meant to be played with a slide and have a very down and dirty blues sound, using a ‘Gibson’ 24 ¾” scale and humbucker pickups.
I also make ‘rockin’ on the porch’ style CBG’s using single coils or simple piezo pickups. These have a high ‘twangy’ sort of tone. Either way, these CBG’s are small, portable and sound bloody awesome! Some are downright strange looking and some are works of art!
If you’re looking for something different and unique that oozes the blues, you can’t go past a cigar box guitar. Handmade to your specifications or off the shelf, I have something that will meet your needs.
Made to order: your choice of 3 or 4 strings on a traditional Cuban Cigar Box, biscuit tin, number plate or handmade wooden box. All necks are made from Tasmanian Oak and fretboards (with/without fret wire) made from African Wenge, Blackwood, Zebrawood, Purple Heart or Jarrah. All electrified with combinations of: piezo; single coil or humbucker pickups; volume and tone controls; and output jack.
Please keep in mind at my Cigar Box Guitars are built with some new and some recycled materials there may be some blemish in the finished product.
