4 String 'LIGHTNING BOY' Premium CBG

4 String 'LIGHTNING BOY' Premium CBG


Now with a 3 WEEK BUILD TIME

Left handed? No problem :) we can build your left handed CBG at no extra cost.

The LIGHTNING BOY is Australia’s best selling premium level CBG with over nearly 100 sold in the last two and a half years.

All 'Lightning Boy' guitars are fretted on rosewood fretboards with medium gauge frets which have been rounded off for your playing pleasure.  This high end range of instruments utilise a 3 pole humbucking pickup specifically designed for CBG. The pickups are pared with quality volume and tone controls for extra versatility as well as sturdy output jacks and quality tuners for great tuning stability.

I use a particular style of Montecristo cigar box for this guitar and mount it in a reverse style so that the timber bottom of the box acts as the sound board.

The guitars are available with either Chrome or black hardware but chrome is the default if I receive no notification regarding choice.

These guitars are made to order so allow about 3 weeks for build time. I will contact you to discuss any specifics that you may require. I will also keep you in the loop with photos and videos (whenever possible) of the build so you know that each guitar has been built specifically for you. All guitars are guaranteed for build and satisfaction with a 7 day guarantee from day of delivery. 

These are individual handmade instruments and the boxes and timber used are often reclaimed or recycled and may show their innate beauty through bumps, borer holes or other natural markings. These imperfections need to be seen as special and unique traits that add to the vibe of these one of a kind rustic instruments.
