Birdwood Guitars and CBGs NEWS


A new site!

It's a very exciting time here at Birdwood Guitars and CBGs. Not only are we building industry leading, Australian made, cigar box guitars (such as the amazing LIGHTNING BOY range) but we now offer a beautiful selection of vintage, Japanese made electric guitars. These beautiful guitars are made by historic companies such as Teisco and Kawai. They are being sold under the banner of Retro-electric Guitars.

We are also introducing a new range of beautiful vintage inspired electric guitars under the Retro-electric brand. These instruments are made for the working musician and incorporate construction methods that provide strength and reliability in an instrument that is designed to show the bumps and knocks of the road. You are adding the relic to your own instrument. The NOIZU model has proven to be very popular and feedback on the prototype has been very favourable. 

Birdwood Guitars and CBGs are also offering our shovel guitar at a very competitive price-point and demand is high for this unique showstopper! We are currently asking for a 3 week build time so get in quick!   

We are always looking at developing new and exciting lines of products and have been having a great time developing our first fuzz pedal. Six prototypes have been made so far and we are refining the sound to produce a powerful and harmonically rich effect. More details as the work progresses.

The updated LIGHTNING BOY CBG is here and wow it's a beauty. It has been made to be strong and lightweight with a slightly larger body size and now with a 10 inch radius fretboard, it's even more comfortable to play. Check it out in the store now.
