The LIGHTNING BOY is Australia’s best selling premium level CBG with over 50 sold in the last 2 years.

All 'Lightning Boy' guitars are fretted with medium gauge frets which have been rounded off for your playing pleasure.  This high end range of instruments utilise Australian made Mortal Coil pickups that have been hand wound and incorporate beautiful Australian timbers. The pickups are pared with quality volume and tone controls for extra versatility as well as sturdy output jacks and genuine Wilkinson tuners for greater 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, gold or black hardware but chrome is the default if I receive no notification regarding choice.

These guitars are made to order so allow 4 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 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 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.
