Custom Electric Cigar Box Guitars
Our goal is to make the highest quality, most usable, playable & versatile cigar box guitars available. The BluesBox is easy to play for all musicians, and 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
Use your BluesBox as a tool to make new sounds! We use quality tuners, an awesome pickup, and good maple. Every BBG is handcrafted in our custom guitar shop. We put a lot of care into the setup, fretting and construction. BluesBox guitars will meet the high expectations of real players and professional musicians.
Our innovative open tuning feature is like having two different instruments. Every BBG includes the unique bridge & nut with special alternate notches for two distinct setup choices. Its' easy. Check out the tuning videos on the tab above!
Standard tuning is like the four highest pitch strings on a guitar. It's easy to move the strings over to the alternate slots, indicated at the bridge and nut, and then re-tune for the different setup. We recommend starting with a double-D dulcimer tuning when trying out the open tuning. Check out the diagram.
Are you into different open tunings? Then this instrument is made for you. We created the BluesBox with a specialized open tuning option. Take a look at other alternate tunings you can do.
