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 Cigar Box Guitar with a solid mahogany interior body, 6 saddle fully adjustable Tele bridge and standard 25.5" scale neck with 21 medium frets (available in rosewood and maple) and vintage Kluson style split key tuners.  This guitar is all setup and ready to play right out of the box, looks, plays and sounds GREAT, includes everything shown in the pictures: volume and tone controls with chrome knobs, quality sealed tuners, strap buttons, all chrome hardware (including the corner pieces, hinges and clasp on the cigar box!), satin finish on body, neck plate and screws, nice ceramic magnet single coil Tele style pickup, input jack and plate and even rubber feet on the body which act as its own built in guitar stand, very cool!!!

Please note: I also sell just these bodies with standardized Fender neck pockets so you can add your own neck and build your own Cigar Box Guitar, see my other listings...

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!

I also have added the extra option of ordering this guitar with one or two pickups (two pickup model adds a Tele style single coil ceramic neck pickup and three way mini toggle) or without any electronics and/or bridge at all if you want to add your own. 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 holes in your neck is not at a big deal at allbut I just gotta state it here...Happy shopping ;-)
