Come visit the only Cigar Box Guitar store in the Northern Hemisphere! We make three and four string cigar box guitars, cigar box bass guitars, as well as cigar box amplifiers and tambourines. Guitars are tuned to Open G making them easy for beginners to learn to play, while more advanced guitarists can play them in more complex ways. All guitars can be played acoustic or electric and feature unique designs making them playable art. Join us every Saturday from 12-2 pm for FREE cigar box guitar lessons, where instructor Pat Nickel can teach anyone a song in one minute. Well-known guitarists that have played cigar box guitars include Bo Diddley, Paul McCartney, Jimmy Hendrix, The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, Lynyrd Skynrd’s Ed King and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. In Huntsville, local musicians John Nickel and Microwave Dave play cigar box guitars. We also offer build-your-own CBG classes with lessons for team building events, school curriculum/after-school clubs and Scouts.
