Cigar Box Guitar 3 string cigar box dulcimer DAD tuning Handmade in England. This simple design is a fun instrument you can plug in and make tunes without bum notes ! That is due to the Doh Ray Mee fret spacing so simple tunes are easy to play. If you use this Cigar box guitar with a bottleneck slide it will sound cool too. I have made other musical items so please look at those if you have time? If you type ' STRUMSTICK HANDMADE IN UK' into YouTube you will find my videos there ......also just copy this link https://youtu.be/53caO8ir2Ao

How this was made

I use mahogany, rosewood, cherry etc and all have a small pick up inside to play with your amp. Easy to play and fun too!



My love of woodcraft was due to a meeting with a guitarist friend who had made an acoustic guitar. We talked about his guitar for many hours and I thought it would be a challenge for me to have a go! Well that was 6 years ago and now in 2021 I am in a small workshop in Stoke where I build various instruments. The Strumstick instrument build is a great way to get to grips with fine woodworking and is an ideal step towards acoustic guitar building. No experience in woodwork is needed.
