We build instruments that are no two alike. They aren't stuffy, they aren't pretentious and they aren't fancy. They are simply a unique and fun way to express yourself through what little or great musical ability you may have. There are NO RULES to playing or building a cigar box guitar so buy one and play the lid off of it!! Know music theory?? Great, take all that you have learned and all the music books you own, and throw them in the garbage. Then, grab a cigar box guitar and play whatever you want however you want. It's that simple.

Our Mission is to Build instruments that are unique and fun to play no matter what your level of musical ability. I also strive to carry on the tradition of cigar box/homemade guitar building that became a mainstay in the Southern Appalachians and the Mississippi Delta during the Great Depression.
