Such a great vintage cigar box! It was just begging for a new life as a ukulele. Dense Northern pine neck with a Mahogany fretboard reclaimed from an old entry door. We used a 20" baritone ukulele scale length to match the proportion of the cigar box size. It's on the larger side for a uke and the tiny side for a guitar. A ton of fun and easy to tote around in a backpack. The neck is firmly glued and screwed to internal braces at each end of the box and is sealed with gloss lacquer. The box is wrapped in clear film/tape as it was received in our shop. A 27mm piezo pickup is fixed in a bed of liquid rubber and located directly under the bridge. Hand-carved bone nut, nickel frets and a standard 1/4" jack. She sounds as cool as she looks.

While I've received a lot of positive feedback from customers who love the instruments I've made for them it's important for potential buyers to understand a few things about them up front. These are primitive, hand-made American folk instruments, not factory made instruments. A lot of love goes into each one with an emphasis on the use of hand tools and design. The finishes used are somewhat rustic and small defects in the wood (as well as a few "maker's marks") may be evident. My objective has always been to create unique guitars, one at a time, that play well, look cool and are a pleasure to handle. CBG's are probably not the finest guitars you'll ever play, but they might be the funest. Plug her in, tune her up and get your friggin' Mojo on!
