Cigar Box Guitar making day



On the Cigar box making course you will make a 3 stringed instrument sometimes called a Dulcimer due to the fret spacing. This instrument can be played acoustically but we will include a small internal pick up so you can play through the amplifier.
The instrument will be tuned to DAD and it can be great fun using a bottle neck for slide guitar too.
The instrument is 850 mm or 34 inches long and take about 7 hours to complete.
The box size is approx 11 inch x 6 inch

You can take home your instrument at the end of the day!

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
