    Default Cigar Box "Tenor" Guitar from St. Blues Guitars

    I saw this on the Premier Guitar Facebook page and thought it looked interesting (and enticing at $275)...
    I'm thinking it could easily be tuned GDAE with the stock strings.
    I love the "Punch" model with the blue box...Nice!

    If ya like cigar box guitars check out my friend Ben Prestage. Hes probably the most amazing musician I've ever met. A true one man band, and a hell of guy.
    Also- theres a fellow named Lowe- he makes what he calls the Lowebow. Its awesome to behold.
    I love cigar box instruments.

    These are the inferior instruments made from Dominican cigar boxes. Although technically illegal, you can still find Cuban cigar box instruments out there. NFI.

    CBGs are great. I have a 3-string electro-acoustic from Back Porch Mojo that I love, though I'd like to go full electric at some point. There are a bunch of makers and there are all kinds of possibilities, from 1-string canjos and diddley bows to 6 string guitars, mandolins, ukes, dulcimers, basses, etc.

    The best resources I've seen online are Cigar Box Nation and cigarboxguitars.com.
