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
