I just received my Cigar Box Guitar.

It was made by Fuzzy Whitener in Texas. He has been making these for a while and has improved upon the basics.

It is all hand made. Hand carved neck with painted frets, Brass Screw for a nut, Actual DonTomas Cigar box. It has a Piezio pickup for that raspy sound. High string setup for slide. Lots of varnish. It is a 4 stringer that I have tuned to Open G.

Here are a couple of pictures and my first attempt at a recording. I have only had it for a day, lots of fun.

These have that old "Delta Blues" Tone.


Cheers

I have been looking at these guitars at a local shop for a while.

They had one this color a while back and it was sold.

I noticed this one last week and finally managed to sweet talk the wife to a mild anger towards me buying another guitar.

I would not say it is a LP copy but rather another version of a style. It has a tone toggle that has capacitors which changes the tone quite a bit. They have made some improvements to the pots. They have more control rather than the old ones they used to install that were at full by #3.

Came with a great case as well. Lots of sustain , fast neck and a nice crunch.

Anyone who may have had one of these, let me know if there is anything I should know. I was thinking of changing the nut to a bone or ivory??.

Thanks

I have been looking at either buying one of these or possibly making one.

There us a guy that makes them quite reasonably "Bluesboy Jag".

Does anyone have any experience, I am interested in feed back or tips



Thanks Scoob

I am looking for some advice on cosing pickups to replace on a Telecaster.

From what I have read the vintage noiseless are what I am steering towards.
I see there are also some cobalt versions out there as well.

I have already ordered a 4 way switch to add series and parallel engagement of both pickups for a little extra kick. as well as new 250K Pots and a 0.047 orange cap.

Any suggestions are appreciated.


Thanks

I found this while looking around



Here is an ebay link for more info. Looks like a lot of modifications to get it to work, new plug input location and more. Ebay link for info

Kind of neat, but not sure how nice it would be to play

Take a look
