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

Five piece Chicken Dinner…finger pickin’ good.

This three string with Chicken diagram painting, sounds every bit as good as it should…it is a nicely voiced acoustic, with a swampy sound indeed. The art hangs on the wall or plays in your hands equally as well….plus, a chicken dinner? sounds good to me.

SWAMP KING…guitar bites man.

Two String Swamp King Two String Swamp King

This custom request was for a two string with a STING!!!, This bad a$$ cigar box guitar has a mean sounding single coil with volume and tone controls, set inside a box that is painted all around with cotton mouth snake scales…the deadliest snake in the swamp. Watch out for this guitar, once bitten, there is little hope for you. SOLD

Green with Envy…

This 4 string cigar box guitar was a custom build for a guy that sold me my VW Westfalia, he wanted it clean and mean…This Cuban cigar box was just right. The green color with the highlights for the fret markers, really sets it off. It is fretted, with a piezo pick up and an old bakelite radio knob for the volume control. Classic. SOLD

Mean, yet Clean in cigar box design

Here’s a couple of clean builds, both 4 string, both electric, both with toothpick frets and cherry wood necks…I love the way the sound holes turned out on these cigar box guitars. SOLD

Dia de los Muertos, cigar box guitars for art show

This series of four boxes was created by me specifically for the ‘Dia de los Muertos’ art exhibit for the City of Anaheim a few years ago. It ran from the beginning of October through the first week in December and was very well received by all who attended. We played live cigar box guitar music there, and enjoyed some great artwork by many talented local artist. These are acoustic 4 stringers with hinge tail piece, cut in fret markers, and custom art work.

Friend Portrait, cigar box guitar with piezo pick up

Friend Portrait Friend Portrait Friend Portrait

I did this cigar box guitar with a portrait of a friend of mine…looks kinda distant and lonely, goes perfect with the blues. This is a four string electric, with maple neck and oak fretboard and this box sounds amazing unplugged, great tone. SOLD
