This is a 3 string Cigar box guitar.Cigar box guitars have been around for over a century.If you like the blues you have to play a cigar box guitar.Play one of these and you will be taken back in time.But now you can plug it in and get some powerful sounds.Play it clean or add some distortion and get some delta blues growl.
I am not just a builder,I am also a player.I have been a playing and performing guitarist for over 30 years.
My guitars have been showcased on slideguitarist(dot)com and have been played and recorded by David Philips.Check out his new album(The Rooftop Recordings) with a couple songs recorded with one of my CBGs.Great Musician.
Here is a video of him playing one of my CBGs
One of my guitars was also selected to represent Cigar Box Guitars on the website - Atlas of Plucked Instruments - in Holland.
Below is a video demonstration of this very guitar.Keep in mind I am left handed so I will be playing it upside down.
The box is a Tatuaje with volume control
It has 3 brass soundholes,
There are 20 medium steel frets with fret markers.Frets are NOT glued,they are pressure installed.Hand installed one at a time.
It is a 25.5in. scale.Total length of guitar is 35in.
Floating Bone bridge and Bolt nut.
Neck-thru body construction.
Solid Pine neck and the fretboard is poplar.The neck and fretboard are seperate woods.This adds great strength and stability to the neck.
Neck is rounded in the back for comfortable playing.
Polyurethane is applied to the neck for that glossy look but most importantly for the protection it provides.
Three open tuning keys with pearl look knobs.Operate smoothly.
Piezo pickup installed under lid under bridge,with a long shaft Neutrik brand input.
Guitar is strung with light acoustic 80/20 Bronze strings.Gauges 42,32,25.Tuned to open G(GDG).But any tuning can be accomplished.
Very comfortable to play with the fingers.The neck is very true which also makes it great to play slide and switch to your fingers instantly without worrying about fret buzz.
Sounds great acoustic or electric.The action is set up so that it can easily be played with or without a slide.
