Repro vintage cigar box

Product Description

Plain box supplied with quality printed labels, perfect as a starting point for making your cigar box guitar.

All birch plywood, 3mm top and back, 9mm sides. Brassed hinges with a sprung clasp. These are a nice size and once built up provide really good acoustic resonance - they can make up into a surprisingly loud guitar.

The labels are re-prints of original American cigar box labels, so are pretty much the nearest you can get to the real thing. Litho-photo printed on satin finish 135gramme paper. The boxes come with a front label for gluing on and a sheet of edges with cut into  9 strips to cover all edges of the box.

Custom made in the UK to our specifications. Ideal for building any range of cigar box guitar from a simple piezo pickup to twin humbuckers. Great for painting, staining, woodburning or an applied paper decoration. 

Measurements: 290 x 200 x 60mm

We recommend making any cutouts and holes to the box before you apply the labels, and once the glue is dry, the openings can be cut out neatly with a sharp craft knife or scalpel. To glue the labels on we recommend Titebond Liquid Hide glue applied in a very thin layer with a roller. A thin layer of glue will help get the labels applied nice and flat with no wrinkle or air bubbles. Regular Titebond glue will also work OK, but you need to take extra care to make sure it is applied nice and thin. Take a look at our video for how to do it - we've already tested this out, made the mistakes and found the best method, so you can benefit from our experience.
