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 Cigar Box Guitar Body with a solid mahogany interior body, standard Strat heel profile 2 & 3/16" neck pocket (this is a 25.5" scale guitar body, any Strat style/scale neck will work fine, I can also do these with a Tele shaped neck pocket upon request!). Everything pictured is included (also available without pickup/electronics, feel free to contact me with ANY custom requests at carlscustom@aol.com) what you get is everything shown in the pictures of the body: great sounding ceramic single coil pickup with one volume, one tone pot and input jack all wired up and ready to go, strap buttons, all chrome hardware (including the hinges and clasp on the cigar box!), chrome knobs, Tele style bridge assembly, input jack plate, neck plate and screws and even the rubber feet on the body which act as its own built in guitar stand, you get to mount your own bridge, 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

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!

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 ;-)
