Hi, my name is John McNair. This is a website about Homemade guitars, Cigar box & 3 string guitars, Cookie tin banjos, and all things made by people like yourself who have decided building and playing homemade instruments is so much more rewarding than buying "name" brand guitars.

I try to post newly uncovered history or stories here every so often, Give the photos time to load on your screen, some of the photos are huge, I wanted to display them nicely, so some will take time to load on your computer.

Cigar Box Guitar Pickups for 3 and 4 string guitar



I am making a selling cigar box guitar pickups that fit either a 3 or 4 string guitar.
The have vintage Tobacco branding and Old West Americana art on them. They also are really easy to add to any guitar because they are super thin and drop right in the front of any guitar.

You can see more information here at this website  http://www.3-string-guitar.com/

If you have any questions, email me anytime at john@reddogguitars.com

I can mail and ship them any where World.




The possibilities are endless. They will match any creative idea. From raw rustic wood, to painted themed guitars, these pickups will give your instrument a really great look!
Here is a short video of some of the ones I have made.
