Hey people,
I have a new build is show you today, The Pollock-Lefty-Rock`N`Roll Demon-3-String, through neck, Cigar Box Guitar. I really enjoyed building this guitar, can`t remember the last time I enjoyed a build this much, sometimes things just fall into place perfectly, sounds great too!

This build is a commission and is left handed, although, I am holding it like a right hander, in this photo, doh!

This left handed, through neck Cigar Box Guitar, has a hand painted, Pollock style box, a Red Grandis, hardwood neck, with 23 frets, mother of pearl top fret mark inlays, a bone nut and bridge and enclosed tuners. A double piezo pickup with volume control, chrome/nickle grommets and box corners and a hand made aluminium tail piece.

The photo below is a closer look at the box.

This side view of the neck, shows how the slotted neck, slides on and hides the join between neck and box, you can also see by boot print logo.

Below, is a closer look at the skull volume knob, you can also see my hand made tail piece and side view of the bone bridge.

The neck is made from a single piece of Red Grandis and has been stained and then oiled, it has 23 frets and mother of pearl top fret mark inlays.

The head stock has enclosed tuners and a bone nut.

This view of the rear of the head stock, show the enclosed tuners and my logo sticker.

Here you can see the tail end, with strap button, jack input, handmade tail piece and bone bridge.

The last photo is a long look up from the tail end.

As usual, finally here is a demo video for this build, it features my song District 9, but as I do not play left handed, I am playing this guitar upside down.

If you enjoyed this post, please share it on the net for me.

Many Thanks,

Stumble On,
Col

Before you think about buying this Home Made Instrument,

Please read the statement below!

 

MISSION STATEMENT

With all of my Home Made Instruments I am using Recycled/Reclaimed Materials where ever I can. Some of the Boxes, Timber and Materials that I use may show signs of Wear and Tear, this is natural. Some Instruments are deliberately aged or distressed, this is the way that they are meant to be and not a fault in the build. If you wish to buy an Instrument that is immaculate and appears to have been built by a machine, this is NOT the Instrument for you. Please buy a factory built guitar!

WHY BUY MY CIGAR BOX GUITARS ?

If on the other hand, you wish to own a One Off, Hand Built Instrument with a Unique Look, Feel and Sound, you have come to the right place. My Instruments are robust, they are built to be Reliable, Hard Working Gigging Instruments, not just ornaments to hang on the wall. I have CBG`s that I have built and Gigged 100`s of time, over the last few years and they still stay in tune and play/work well.

IS ONE OF MY BUILDS RIGHT FOR YOU ?

Most of my Instruments are in Open Tunings and are designed for playing Slide Guitar, with an Action low enough to easily play with your fingers for at least the first 7 Frets, but still high enough for Slide Playing. If you wish to play exclusively with your fingers, you may find the action a little high, you could ask me to custom build you something or look at buying a Cigar Box Strum Stick or Dulcimer from somewhere else.

CUSTOM BUILDS

If you are looking to buy an Instrument that you have not seen here on this site, please send me an email, if I can, I will build it for you.

GUARANTEE

All of my Instruments are guaranteed, if you are unhappy with it, I want to know about it, and if it develops a fault, I will happily repair it, not if you drop it down the stairs, but say, if the Electrics pack up. If you do drop it down the stairs, I may be able to fix it, for a price though!

SHIPPING

All prices include UK Main Land shipping, if you are outside the UK, please message me and I will find out the price, to deliver to your location. I am happy for you to arrange with me to collect it, the price will then be £10 less, if this is the case, again please message me.

Many Thanks,
