Grab a cigar Box Guitar and play 

Cigar box guitars are fun and easy to play. They have even been around longer than steel string guitars. It is a popular belief that only poor people built and played these great rustic instruments during difficult times but it has come to light that they were being built by the wealthy as well. They are truely an addictive little instrument.

I build my CBGs from genuine, discarded cigar boxes and other timber boxes. They are built in fretless and fretted styles but all can be played with a slide. It is most common for cbgs to be played in open tuning. I prefer to string my builds in open g tuning (GDG) as most of the instructional videos on the internet are played in that tuning.

When you visit birdwood guitars you are welcome to grab an instrument and play. adam and lloyd are always on hand to help. So come in and say hi and don’t forget to bring your mojo.
