Ashton VSG, Lace Alumitone Matchbook pickup - 4 String Cigar Box Guitar

Product Description

I've gone all-out to make the ultimate cigar box guitar!

Lace pickups in California recently brought out a "Matchbook" version of their Alumitone pickup, specifically designed for cigar box guitars.  I've got hold of a small 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 and micro-adjustable tilt neck. 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.

Beautiful solid Spanish cedar "Ashton VSG" cigar box.

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

Blackwood Tek 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  D G B D.

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.

Micro-adjustable tilt neck for ultimate flexibility in setting up the action.

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. The pickup is also coil tapped for an increased range of tones. If you want the best, be quick, there won't be many of these available!
