Check out one of my Cigar Box Guitars in action here:
Let me just start by saying this: You may see other Cigar Box Guitars kicking around on the internet, but many of those instruments are tacked together pieces of scrap wood that may make good conversation pieces but can NOT really be played, MY Cigar Box Guitar Bodies are quality, hand crafted instruments that make for a VERY playable, professional instrument!
This auction is for a hand made, FULLY PLAYABLE, PRO QUALITY 6 string electric Cigar Box Guitar Body with a solid mahogany interior body, 6 saddle fully adjustable Tele bridge and standard Strat style 2 & 3/16" neck pocket (this is a 25.5" scale guitar body, any Strat style/scale neck will work fine!). Everything is included EXCEPT the pickup and neck (I have these bodies complete with neck, pickup and fully setup/ready to play in my EBAY Store here: ), what is included is everything else shown in the pictures of the body: volume and tone controls with chrome knobs, strap buttons, all chrome hardware (including the hinges and clasp on the cigar box!), satin finish, neck plate and screws , input jack and plate and even rubber feet on the body which act as its own built in guitar stand, its all wired up and ready to go, just need to add a pickup and neck!!!
Long before the days of internet shopping and large musical superstores many people had to work with whatever limited resources they had available to produce homegrown musical instruments. There is a long tradition of crudely made cigar box "guitars" which were basically a cigar box tacked to a piece of wood for a neck with some wire attached to pluck on, a lot of fun for the front porch but not something you can realistically plug into an amp and rip into on stage, what I have done here is taken that classic concept and brought it into the 21st century!!!
Yes, there is a VERY real guitar built around this wooden cigar box, and yes it REALLY opens, revealing the solid mahogany body (a GREAT guitar tone-wood!), you can even still keep some cigars in there hehe! The dimensions of the box are 2.5x6&5/8x9.75 inches. Again, this is a handmade custom instrument that is fully capable of being played everywhere from strumming on your couch to a pro stage rig at full volume (and everywhere in between), its a surprisingly versatile instrument, has the warmth of a semi hollow body guitar combined with the bite of a solid body!
Please note that I can not guarantee that the neck mounting holes on this body will line up perfectly to any pre drilled holes your neck may have, I can not account for every neck manufacturer (or home guitar maker!) and their screw spacing but my bodies have a standard Strat style neck plate pre mounted with the holes already drilled and neck screws included, having to drill holesin your neck is not at a big deal at allbut I just gotta state it here... ;-)
