This one started off with a medium size "King Edward" cigar box. The dense Northern pine neck is topped with a Mahogany fretboard which was reclaimed from an old entry door. We used a 21" baritone ukulele scale length to match the proportion of the cigar box size. The neck is firmly fixed in a bed of woodglue and fastened with screws to internal braces at each end. It is also supported with a steel bracket through the box. The neck is sealed with matte finish lacquer. A 27mm piezo pickup is fixed in a bed of liquid rubber and located directly under the bridge. Hand-carved bone nut, knurled chrome volume knob and a standard 1/4" jack. She sounds as cool as she looks.

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

We pack carefully and ship daily (except Sunday, of course) by USPS parcel post. We use parcel post to keep shipping costs down due to the oversized package length. If you need it faster you can upgrade your shipping to USPS Priority Mail with the listing below…
