What Are Your Cigar Box Guitar necks Made Out Of?
I use red oak depending on what I have in stock. The poplar are smoother and lighter and the red oak are more porous. Both work great at a cigar box guitar neck. I carefully hand sand the edges to round them for easier playing. The end of the neck has a slope which allows the tuners to be installed. The rear end of the neck it attached to the lid of the cigar box.
The red oak necks do not warp. I've sold over 4000 over the past 13 years with no warping complaints.They are very sturdy and I put about 5 coats of polyurethane on them.
The neck below has not had the fret markers installed yet.
I also make diddley bow guitars which are one or two string cigar box guitars made with wood dowels for necks.
