Hi, this is a website about Homemade guitars, Cigar box guitars, 3 and 4 string guitars, Cookie tin banjos, and the history of hand made and homemade musical instruments from around the world.

Give the photos time to load on your screen. Some of the photos are large in size. I wanted to display them nicely, so some will take time to load on your computer screen.

Tomahawk Cigars - 1868 Pickup cover art

Here is some old time Bottleneck Blues music played on cigar box guitar

I have pickups for sale at this website http://www.3-string-guitar.com/
If you have any questions you can email me at john@reddogguitars.com or Google Red Dog Guitars.
In the video above is an guitar in progress. It is already much different than in the video. It's just hard to edit the video and photos because of time. I will post an updated video soon.

Since your here, check out this video and artist I thought you might like. He really has a great sound.
 He just opened up for ZZ-Top so I guess we could say "he's moving on up"  that's a pretty good score...I expect to see much more of him. He certainly knows how to make a three string sound great!

Have a listen to this and his name is Jordan Matthew Young...be on the look over the next year or so. I bet you'll see much more of him.
