Aroma de Cuba, Lace Alumitone pickup - 3 String Cigar Box Guitar DeLuxe outfit

Product Description

This guitar is used but mint.  It went out to a customer and he decided it was too much guitar for him, and a bit too fancy. He hardly played it at all, so he traded it in for a simpler one. We've upgraded it to have an adjustable angle neck, so in fact it is better than new! It also comes with a full size vintage style tweed case and lots of "case candy" goodies.

I've put everything I've got into this special guitar  - the best materials and components available,  together with my workmanship and some special inspiration.

Lace pickups in California have recently brought out a "Matchbook" version of their Alumitone pickup, specifically designed for cigar box guitars. I've got hold of a batch of them, and decided to build some very special guitars  - and this is one of them.

I felt that these special pickups were worthy of the best that I could make, so this guitar is fitted with a fully adjustable neck and the best hardware available. The laminated 3 piece neck is fitted with a 2-way truss rod. This means the guitar can be set-up to suit the individual player's needs, and the laminated neck and truss rod ensure a perfectly stable neck that is capable of being finely adjusted. This guitar is also fitted with our micro-adjust neck tilt system for ultimate flexibility for setting the guitar's action.

Traditional style "Aroma de Cuba" cigar box with solid sapele "wings" for a perfect balance on the strap and ultimate comfort for seated playing.

Sapele and maple through neck, with 2-way adjustable truss rod and shaped headstock

Black walnut fretboard with Van Gent super jumbo frets.

Real mother of pearl position and edge dot markers, bone nut.

Our guitar necks are fully profiled by hand using traditional methods for great playability and comfortable in-the-hand feel. Finished in hand rubbed gunstock oil and polished to a beautiful satin sheen.

25 1/2 inch scale length, "Zilpha" hexcore strings. Tuned G D G.

Low profile Lace Aumitone induction pickup. Tone and volume pots, "orange drop"  tone capacitor, chrome "tele" style control knobs,  coil split switch, Neutrik jack on custom stainless steel plate,  Van Damme hookup wire.

Top quality Van Gent deluxe machineheads. 

Stainless steel hardtail bridge with adjustable saddles.

Van Gent strap buttons. 

Stainless steel soundhole trims.

This guitar really is special in terms of  materials, workmanship and sounds. The USA-made pickup has great punch and clarity, and works well for both clean and overdriven sounds. If you want the best, be quick, there won't be many of these available!

It also comes with the following:

  • Full size tweed hardcase
  • Uber Doofer soft leather strap and shoulder pad
  • Custom Sommer tweed lead with black & gold Neutrik jacks
  • Spare set of Zilpha balanced tension hexcore strings
  • Starsinger ceramic slide
