I love my Smokin' Axe guitar! It is beautiful and the sound is impressive for a cigar box. Smokin Axe is the the nicest seller I have encountered on Etsy. My original guitar was stolen while in the care of UPS, but Kacey was extremely quick about following up with me and updating me and Danny made me a new one exactly like it in a couple of weeks. Thanks to the postal service, it arrived safe and sound. I'm looking forward to traveling with my cigar box guitar this summer.

Returning customer, Another beautiful guitar from Smokin' Axe. The sound acoustic is deep and full, Plugged in you can get as loud as you want! Love the perfectly crafted F-holes. My favorite part of Danny's guitars is the buttery smooth comfortable necks! Each fret is is perfectly spaced and the headstock is beautiful. Danny is not only a great craftsman but a really nice guy who is very personable and always available to give tips on building. Kacey is always providing updates on the purchase and communicates through buying till delivery. You two are great and I'm so happy with my new guitar! Thank you!!

Welcome to the shop!

As a music lover and self-taught guitar player of over 18 years, Danny ensures that every cigar box guitar ("CBG") he makes is one he wants to play and enjoy himself. Danny takes pride in using mostly recycled and re-purposed materials for each custom-made Smokin' Axe CBG. The size and shape of the sound holes, number of frets, acoustic or electric design and color of the neck are all determined by the individual cigar box, resulting in truly one-of-a-kind pieces.

All guitar necks are fitted with real fret wire. The guitar bridges are height-adjustable, allowing for more flexibility in the action of the strings. This allows the guitars to be played with or without a slide. The heads are designed to fit standard guitar wall mount hangers.
