How to buy

Feel free to straight out buy anything listed here in the shop. But, I encourage you to contact me via the etsy email system to start a discussion about what you are looking for and how you will use it (hanging out by the campfire, on stage with your band, etc...). A great deal of my business is in custom guitars and you may find you enjoy the process that much more when you have input in the design and creations stages.

Shop policies

I build cigar box guitars by hand in my shop. I source all my materials locally with the exception of the tuners and string ferrules. Virtually all wood used comes from my stock of sustainably harvested lumber (harvested and milled by me). Some internal bracing and occasional external enhancements come from scrap wood in my shop that originally came from a big box store.

The entire concept of a cigar box guitar is the recycling of materials. I try to live up to that wherever possible. My guitars are sturdy enough for young players and travel, without compromising sound quality. All boxes are fully functional - they can be opened for easy servicing or storage of pics, harmonicas, etc... Some boxes require opening to change the strings. Most of my guitars can easily be modified to include a magnetic pickup, standard or humbucker, if you are so inclined. Feel free to reach out to me on pricing if you are interested in a magnetic pickup on one of my guitars. Or, I can tell you how to do it yourself.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept payments via paypal. If you are local and want to stop by and test drive and pay cash, thats also fine by me.
I will ship within one working day of confirmed payment. Shipping is standard USPS or UPS, whichever is most efficient. Guitars are well packaged and insured.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refunds are available upon request and return of the guitar. Contact me for details. My number one concern is happy customers enjoying their guitars and I will do my best to ensure that happens.
