"The Partagas" Hand-made Cigar Box Guitar by Deep South CBG

This is "The Partagas," a recently completed 3-string cigar box guitar by Deep South CBG. She has an oak neck, rosewood fretboard, hardtail bridge and Snake Oil mini-Humbucker with volume and tone controls.

The sound test on this instrument was really excellent (video here). With the humbucker placed as far from the bridge as possible, she gives a grungy, deep, bluesy tone when tuned to Open G. I think this little beast will be really enjoyed by whomever plays it.

If interested in this guitar, contact me. She's available for adoption.
