These cigar box guitars are true to their origins as "folk" instruments, they have a "rustic', rough, unsophisticated feel but are solidly made, genuinely playable guitars.


Way back when people were making the first cigar box guitars they were quite literally a stick and a box with any wire that was available used for strings. We may have moved on a bit from those early days but this guitar is true to the original concept of "A Stick and a Box".
