Hey, Thanks for comming to my page. I am a roofer that loves to build Cigarbox guitars.
I usually stick to the 3 stringers. I find that the non players can get a good blues sound outta them . And they can do it without hours of lessons. (More like 5 minutes)I have built other things but really enjoy the 3 string CBG.
All my CBG's come the way they come. Meaning I build them the way I like them. My favorite feature is my high gloss, hand brushed, hand sanded,multi coated poly necks.
I tend to like Les Pauls and vintage guitars. So the high gloss necks are important to me.
I also Like lightwieght aluminum hardware. I have experimented with different items but I like the transfer I get from aluminum.
I will use whatever wood is available,but tend to use spanish cedar. I find that to be my overall favorite for tone and looks.
I have a very modest website www.littlejohnscigarboxguitars.com. Where you can view available guitars for sale. And when I get good enough with the site building I will learn to put helpful videos. Pictures of past builds. And whatever else I think would be nice. I dont sell my CBG's to get rich. However I aint selling them for pocket change anymore either. I would love to build them for a living, but find the market a lil tough with people selling them for the prices that they do. So I sell mine as fair as I can. Make enough to pick up a new tool here and there, get parts for more builds And keep building because I love it. Not because I have too. Maybe one day Ill find that golden opportunity to build for a living and still love it. But untill then Ill be a roofer that builds when I can.
One thing for certain. My builds play good and sound good. I am a musician and its important to me to make sure they are worthy to play and listen too. If I wouldnt like it for myself. I wouldnt sell it. I dont mind if you wanna hang them up as art on your wall. Thats fine with me. You can still play it if needed.
I have had ladies ask me to build Cigarbox Purses. I love building but do not have a love for building things that dont interest me. And Im not very interested in purses. So I dont build them.
I have built a cookie tin I was really proud of,built a stand up gas tank bass Im not as proud of. (No Wood Challenge) So it doesnt always have to be a cigar box. It just has to spark my interest.
This is a really nice site Ted has put together. And I find it to be filled with some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. (thanks Ted) Im proud to be a member of this clubhouse. And will always try to be of help when I can.
