Demo-The Cohiba Chocolate- 3 String Cigar Box Guitar

by Col on May 29, 2016

Hey People,
today I have a new Cigar Box Guitar to show you,The Cohiba Chocolate, Cigar Box Guitar.


This 3 String, through neck, Cigar Box Guitar, has 23 frets, a red Grandis neck, bone nut, bone and hard wood bridge, double piezo pickup with volume control, grommets, box corners, string trees and enclosed tuners in chrome, mother of pearl fret marks and a hand made tail piece.


Here is a closer look at the box.


In this photo you can see the slotted neck, this enable to neck to slide into the box, this hides the join, between box and neck. You can also see my now legendary boot print.


Here is a closer look at the bridge and chicken head knob, I use bone for the bridge and nut, I have experimented with plastics and resins and I have found that nothings works as well as bone.


This picture of the tail end shows the strap button, jack input and the end of the through neck with hand made tail piece.


Here is the back of the box, it is a lovely clean box this one, not a mark on it.


The headstock has enclosed tuners and string trees in chrome and a bone nut.


This picture shows the reverse of the head stock with enclosed tuners and my logo sticker.

Neck Spots-1024x768

I have fitted mother of pearl fret marks on the top edge for frets 3-5-7-9, 2 at 12 and 3-5-7 pass the octave.


The last photo is a long look up from the bottom.

Finally, as always, here is a demo video for this build, featuring my own song, Slide-Rattle & Roll.
