I love it, I have already moved it into my live performing rotation. Great tone, great intonation, great action, great looks. Could not be happier, I will probably buy another one in the future! THANKS!

Unplanned Adventure

Inspired by a musician playing an odd looking instrument, I began poking around the internet and discovered the world of Cigar Box Guitars. A few weeks later while browsing around a local antique market I stumbled across a single black cigar box and at the urging of my wife decided to take a shot at experimenting with my own build.

Needless to say things have come a long way since then. Most of my tools were 'donated' and needed some minor repairs. There have also been a few failed attempts along the way. However, after several builds and some investments in better tools, I've been able to create some awesome instruments that are unique and that play great!

Rock on,

    I build for the joy of creating. This joy comes from being made the image of the Creator Himself. The gift of being able to create both the instrument, and the music with it, is an amazing wonder.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 28, 2014
Alberbox guitars are hand made, using local wood and real cigar boxes. While some essential parts such as tuning keys and piezos are purchased, these instruments are each unique unlike many larger factory made CBGs. The intent is to preserve the original 'hobo' feel while still providing an quality playable instrument.

All instruments are hand made and assured to play great.
