The Hollowbelly Redo 3-String-Cigar Box Guitar

by Col on September 15, 2016

Hi guys,
Got a build to show you today, this is not a new build, but one that I built some time ago and have now modified.

I built this through neck Cigar Box Guitar, for Hollowbelly a couple of years ago, but he has never used it live, because he does not like Piezo pick-ups, So I took it back and fitted a magnetic pick-up instead.

A closer look at the box, this Cigar Box Guitar has hardware in chrome and so I added a nice chrome magnetic pick-up and surround.

Here is a look at my legendary boot print and the slotted neck.

In this photo you can see skull & cross bones speed knob, for the volume control and a better look an the nice shiny pick-up + a side view of the handmade tail piece.

The neck is made from hardwood, but I am not sure what type, I got from a skip, it has 23 frets, and I have now added mother of pearl top fret marks inlays.

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

The reverse of the head stock show the enclosed tuners and my logo sticker.

This is one of my CSI, high velocity, blood splatter, special editions, with these builds, not only do you get the blood splatters and bloody boot print on the front, but you also get blood splatters, my bloody hand print and the owners name on the back of the box.

Here is the tail end, with my handmade tail piece, bone bridge, strap button and jack in-put.

The last picture is long look up from the tail end.

Finally, here is a demo video for this build, featuring the song “Judy is a Punk” by The Ramones.
