Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Final photo

A new client build. Thought y'all might want to follow along.

This is my Six Banger design although maybe this should be called Four Banger as it will have 4 strings. it's based on the body style of my Six Banger model guitar. The body is a beautiful slab of African Limba Korina and the bridge cover and control & jack plates are zebrawood. It'll be powered by 2 Stonehenge pickups with an underwound neck and normal bridge. Rounding out the electronics are a 3 way switch and volume & tone for each pup. The knobs will be hand crafted and we'll see what they are once they're finished.

Stay tuned, it's going to be a great ride!

Wish I had a video of this baby in action.  Sadly, I don't get to hear most of my creations once they leave the shop.
