  • Regular price $300.00


Most of the materials used to build my Cigar Box Guitars are reclaimed pieces and/or purchased locally in Potsdam, NY. Each Cigar Box Guitar is Handmade by a local Cabinetmaker, Christopher Weems, a resident of Norwood, NY.

The history of this instrument dates back to the 1800's and up through to today where there is a Cigar Box Guitar movement going on all over the world. You can play the blues, folk, and much more on these instruments. It also makes a great addition to your collection.

These guitars are built in a way that will bring you back to the roots of music and help you to loosen up, set aside all seriousness in a crazy world, and have fun.
