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"...

I've just got these beautiful ceramic slides in stock. In the past I haven't got on with ceramic slides...but these are different. They have a nice weight, consistent shape and super-hard smooth glaze...what's not to like? Handmade in the UK, available in small, medium and large in a choice of 5 stunning colourways...all this for only a tenner!!!

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.
