Hi guys,
Today a new build is show you, the Red Dawg CBG

Below, a picture of me holding the thing for scale, nice big wooden box this.

This 3-String Cigar Box Guitar, has 23 frets, a one piece, Red Grandis hardwood, through neck, with mother of pearl, top fret mark inlays, enclosed tuners, a bone nut + a bone and hardwood bridge. With a double Piezo pickup with volume control and box corners and grommets in chrome + a handmade tail piece.

Here is a closer look at the Partigas Box.

Above, you can see my trade mark boot print, a couple of grommets and the slotted neck, that slides on and hides the join, between neck and box.

This photo shows a side view of the handmade tail piece and the 70`s hi-fi stereo knob that I have used for the volume control.

This tail end view, gives a good look at the tail piece, handmade out of Aluminium + the jack in-put and strap button.

The neck is made from a single piece of Red Grandis hardwood, it has 23 frets, with Mother of Pearl top fret mark inlays.

The head stock has a bone nut and counter sunk, enclosed chrome tuners.

With this picture of the back of the head stock, you can see the chrome enclosed tuners and my logo sticker.

This last photo is long Artie look up from the tail end.

Finally here is a demo video for this build.

Many Thanks,
Stumble On,
Col
