Chickenbone John - The Godfather of the Cigar Box Guitar



I don't do normal guitars...but what I do is always unique and with my own personal slant on things...why not take a look around?  I make cigar box guitars (and lots of other types of stringed instruments too), play them, teach people how to build their own guitars...and how to play them too.

They call me "The Godfather of the cigar box guitar"...

Beautiful guitars, hand-painted by my daughter Anne Zilpha...on sale in the online shop.

If you are looking to buy a cigar box guitar, please note that due to constant worldwide demand, my stock level is a bit low. I am working on more guitars right now and my focus is on getting my custom orders completed. Everything that we have listed in the online shop is in stock and ready for immediate delivery.
