For Prime Cuts of Beef…you need a quality AXE

This axe is a real blues shredder. The three string acoustic is…loud…swampy…MEATY! Artwork to make the most grizzled butcher cry, and that bluesy tone that brings a tear to your eye. A nice guy in Southern California is wailing on this one right now,…unless he’s eating. SOLD

Livin’ High on the Hog…three string cigar box guitar

High on the Hog 

High on the Hog High on the Hog

This piece was part of a series of cigar box guitars I did with a “butcher cut” theme. This was a short scale (22″), three string acoustic with a ‘do, re, mi’ fret marker layout. I off-set the neck from center a bit to give a little different dynamic since the cigar box itself was a square. SOLD

Old Box, New Diddly-bow…

I found this old Santa Fe cigar box at an antique store and thought it would be just perfect for a one string diddly-tar, or as they call it, a diddly-bow. I stamped in the DO, RE, MI, FA, SO, LA, TI, DO…for the fret markings…so you can easily play “Mary had a little lamb”, or “Twinkle, twinkle, little star”….classic. FOR SALE

Unlock the Delta Blues…with these KEY’s

Here was a custom order…the electric with the key ring of antique keys (it is a painting of the tattoo the customer has on his arm). I liked the ‘key’ theme, so I did an accompanying acoustic version as well, and I found some lock opening type metal thing’s (yeah, I know nice description) to decorate the boxes with.
