This is a genuine Birdwood Guitar. Years of research, trial and time have gone into building a quality product that is as individual as it is a pleasure to play. 

This guitar is part of the limited ‘Art Box’ series of rustic guitars that highlight the beautiful art that could be found on cigar boxes and other artefacts of the past. All the images are public domain. 

A piezo pickup helps to amplify the sound of acoustic instruments. This great pickup transfers the vibration of the strings, bridge and box and creates a very bluesy tone that is great for recreating the tone of the Deep South.
