This Build Your Own Cigar Box Guitar Kit is simple to assemble and comes with easy-to-follow instructions which can be completed by anyone of any age. It has a great acoustic sound and is the bare bones introduction to the traditional Cigar Box Guitar, remaining fully customizable from headstock shape to neck profile, string action to electrics, from paint finish to accessories. The B.Y.O model also features a fully-fretted neck carved from one solid piece of Poplar timber, piezo-disk pickup so you can plug-in to an amp, and a mahogany bridge base. This kit comes with strings and all parts necessary to complete the guitar kit – nothing else but creativity required.

Choose from the Standard model or the Slide-Starter Kit, the latter of which comes complete with one hand-cut bottle slide, 4x chrome corner pieces, authentic vintage cigar box graphic illustration sticker and D+H guitar pick.

3 and 4 String versions available – simply select from the drop down menu.
