Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Hi everybody I'm Nick


I'm from a town called Hitchin which is about 30 miles north of London. I was really inspired to start building my own instruments when I saw Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars play a Cigar Box Guitar and a 2 string coffee can guitar in London last year and I recently got 'Cigar Box Guitars' by David Sutton as a birthday present which has given me some guidance and great ideas. Currently in the middle of my first build. Will post pictures when it is completed!

Sounds like your off to a great start. Be sure to take time to learn how to play it as well. Building CBG's is a fun hobby, but playing them is the icing on the cake.


Welcome Nick, I love the name of your town "Hitchin" sounds like a town you'd find out in Texas. Anyway welcome to the madness!
