  • Why Bluesboy Jag Cigar Box Guitars Are Top Quality Instruments

    I've made over 4000 CBG's of every variety known to man so I know the ins and outs and tricks of how to make a playable CBG that will last a lifetime.

    Adjustable string height for fretted (low) or slide (higher) playing.

    The same wire frets Gibson and Fender uses for intricate chording and excellent tone.

    Uses any electric guitar strings

    Contoured and lowered headstock for better intonation.

    Contoured (rounded) underside of neck for easy playability.

    Hidden single coil pickup to preserve the unique cigar box artwork. The pickup is inside the box, all that is visible is the screws/pole pieces.

    Most models have a 5th 4th 3rd and 2nd strings, however you can use heavier gauge strings.

    Red oak neck - hand made, the best wood for a guitar neck, light and very easy to fret and resistant to bowing.

    Each CBG Is Signed and serialized.

    The History of the Cigar Box Guitar

    Trace evidence of cigar box instruments exist from 1840 to the 1860s. The cigar box guitars and fiddles were important in the rise of jug bands and blues. As most of these performers were black Americans living in poverty, many could not afford a "real" instrument.

    The Great Depression of the 1930s saw a resurgence of homemade musical instruments. Times were hard in the American south and for entertainment sitting on the front porch singing away their blues was a popular pastime. Musical instruments were beyond the means of everybody, but an old cigar box, a piece of broom handle and a couple wires from the screen door and a guitar was born. Famous musicians that played CBG include Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy.

    About me:

    I've been playing guitar for since 1977 and teaching guitar since 1980. I have recorded about 40 90 minute cassettes of my own music over the next 20+ years. I've made over 4000 CBG's of various types since 2004.
