BluesBox™ ◘ variable electric cigar box guitar
Our goal is to make the highest quality, most usable, playable and versatile cigar box guitar available. BluesBox guitars are designed to be easy to play for all musicians, but especially guitar players. A quick tuning lesson will allow anyone to create new music with a BBG.
• Great for recording
• Fun on stage
• Slide playing
• Blues & Folk
This CBG is a professional tool for you to make new sounds. Handcrafted in our custom guitar shop, we put more care into the setup, fretting and construction. We use quality tuners, an awesome pickup, and proper components. BluesBox will meet the high expectations of real players and professional musicians.
The innovative open tuning feature is like having two different instruments. All of them include this unique bridge (and nut) with the alternate notches for two distinct setup choices. Check out the tuning video on the tab above!
Standard tuning is like the 4 highest pitched strings on a guitar (from high to low) E, B, G, D. You can move the strings to the alternate slots, indicated at the bridge and nut, then re-tune for the open tuning setup. We recommend starting with a double-D dulcimer tuning when trying it out this way (DD, A, D).
Are you into open tunings on guitar? Then this instrument is made for you. We designed the BluesBox around the specialized open tuning option. Take a look at some of the other alternate tunings you can do.

Every BluesBox guitar is made with a solid maple neck. Our techs spend extra time getting the action just right with a hand-carved bone nut, and careful adjustments to the specialized ebony bridge. It comes stock with a great sounding lipstick tube pickup. BluesBox guitars sound awesome plugged in, and acoustically they mic up really well in a studio environment. This gets you a rustic old-timey sound. BluesBox is the most versatile CBG around!
