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.

La Calavera, loteria card cigar box guitar

I start a series of these Loteria Card paintings on cigar boxes, with the plan of turning them all into guitars…well, this is the only one that made it’s way to instrument status, with it’s poplar neck and custom oil painted graphics. It’s hanging up in my good friend’s Man Room and looks great. SOLD
