Cigar Box Guitar Kit


Create your very own Cigar Box Guitar from the ground up. Everything you need is included in this kit.

Comes with all the hardware necessary for your build. All the holes are pre-drilled and pre-cut. You’ll only need a few basic tools to put it all together. As Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

You can assemble your Busk Box Guitar as is or go all out with your own custom paint job and accessories. Make it your way.

This kit assembles into an instrument that’s both acoustic and electric. Let the cigar box’s natural resonance carry your music, or plug it into an amp and jam out.
