Handmade Cigar Box Guitar



It's one of my favorites!

My husband, Michael does an awesome job building these cigar box guitars. He hand carves the neck from a fallen black walnut tree that used to stand in his parents' backyard. He carves the neck with vintage tools. The necks are fretless and the markers are burned in. This helps to create an usual and unique playing experience.

The cigar box guitars have three strings. It can be played acoustically or plugged into an amp.

This would make an awesome gift to yourself or someone special!


You can hear a sound clip of one of his cigar box guitars:
You will even find a music video at the bottom of this page where one of his CBGs is played!

this is a great idea to recycle things and make use of those things that are set aside.
