CBG ClayYou could never imagine that you could have so much fun with such a primitive instrument – but it harkens back to our blues roots and it’s a blast to play – the cigar box guitar! These are hand-made instruments by Rob. No two are the same. The bodies are actual cigar boxes and the woods of the neck vary but are most often oak – although recently we’ve been experimenting with exotic hard words for the necks. Occasionally, a different box or even a tin can will be used for the body. Fret boards tend to be oak or poplar. Bodies are generally filled in with poplar to give a nice heavy feel to the guitar. THESE GUITARS ARE MADE FOR SLIDE GUITAR PLAYING!!! We also have free on-line lessons on how to play these amazing instruments. Check them out! As demand for these guitars is high compared to output (1-2 month), please email if you are interested in acquiring one. Prices vary depending on the materials and generally run from about $90 – $160.
