Build your own custom Cigar Box Guitar! MY Cigar Box Guitar Bodies are quality, hand crafted instruments that make for a VERY playable, professional instrument! 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, mine certainly CAN!

This is a hand made, FULLY PLAYABLE, PRO QUALITY 6 string electric engraved Cigar Box Guitar Body with a solid mahogany construction, standard Fender 2 & 3/16" neck pocket (available with either Tele or Strat pocket shape, your choice when you place it in the cart here on the site). This is a full sized 25.5" scale guitar body, any Strat/Tele style/scale neck will work fine. Everything pictured is included or you can select which electronics/hardware you dont want/need when you place the body into the cart if you may have your own pickups, bridge etc you want to use. Feel free to contact me with ANY questions/comments/custom requests you may have at carlscustomguitars@gmail.com.

Features include a fully engraved solid mahogany body with featuring an elegant hand rubbed finish on interior and exterior body, GFS Modern Vintage humbucking pickups (with push/pull coil tap on tone pot), also have an option to add a matching neck pickup when you place the item in your cart, vintage Kluson style split key tuners, vintage ash tray Tele style bridge with brass compensated saddles (classic look but modern ability to intonate each string), full size alpha pots, all chrome hardware, just mount your own neck and you have a super cool new guitar!!! NOTE: If you arent ready to do all that work I also sell these as fully assembled guitars ready to play right out of the box AND also sell them without the electronics, pickup, bridge etc etc, check them out in my other listings 

Here's a video of this exact body in action, along with some of my other products: 


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 body built to look and feel like a classic wooden cigar box, and yes it REALLY opens, revealing the solid mahogany interior 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 Fender hole spacing with the holes already drilled and neck screws included...Happy shopping ;-)
