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.


3 & 4 String Cigar Box Guitar Pickups




I have been making Tobacco and Americana pickups off and on for a few years now and I often get questions on if I have some for sale.  I am making a few models to have permanently in stock. If you build or sell cigar box guitars, these are a great addition to your instrument. They add both value and have a vintage tone.
Here is a short demo video of them and the sound sample is at the end of the video. If you are looking to recreate those old vintage sounds from the 1920's and 30's these will give you a wide range of possibilities. Go from clear and bell like highs with clarity to deep southern raunchy overdrive, with one of these pickups on your guitar you can bring the past alive!

Here is a short demo video with a sound sample and song at the end, Have a listen.
