This is #60 from Barefoot Boogie Guitars. This 4 String Guitar was made from an Arturo Fuente Cigar Box. It has an Oak neck with a Vintage Paddle headstock, and a dark Wenge Fretboard.

These types of instruments have roots from the Deep South (1800’s) where folks that did not have money to buy instruments, would use scrap materials to make their own. Many times, they would use a wooden box, broom handle, and 1-2 wire strings. This one has obviously taken it to a new level, and is very unique.

The neck is made Red Oak. The Fret board is made of Wenge. Fret Markers are Green Abalone. The nut is made of Buffalo bone, and the bridge is made of Purpleheart with a fret wire topper. There is a piezo pickup installed under the bridge. The neck of the guitar has several coats of boiled linseed oil for a satin smooth finish. The body of the guitar is also finished in Tung Oil for durability.

This is a quality made instrument. I'd really encourage you to use the zoom on the pics to see the workmanship. There is a difference!

The bridge is floating, which means that it is not glued down, and can be moved to correct any intonation down the road. If you ever change out the strings, just keep in mind that the distance from the edge of the nut to the top of the bridge is exactly 25.5 inches.
