This 3-String, Cigar Box Guitar has a Red Grandis, hardwood neck, with 23 frets, a Mother of Pearl, top fret mark inlays, enclosed tuners and string trees in chrome and a bone nut. Chrome grommets and box corners, double piezo pick-up with volume control, a bone and hardwood bridge and a handmade tail piece.

This wooden La Aurora box has a blue background, with a lion in the foreground, hence the name, the Blue Lion, here is a closer look at the box.

Here you can see the slotted neck, that slides on and hides the join, between box and neck and my boot print.
