Demo-The Pollock-Lefty-R N R Demon-3-String Cigar Box Guitar

by Col on November 13, 2017

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,
