Brookwood Cigar Box Guitars

Unique guitars, handmade in Australia

The “Cigar Box Guitar” was born out of hard times during the great depression of the 1930’s. It was particularly popular in the American South, where sitting on the front porch and singing the blues was a popular pastime.

Recently I became intrigued with the open tuning on guitars, what songs to play and how to play them. This led me into the fascinating world of “Cigar Box Guitars”. I love the adage “there ain’t no rules for CBG’s” and the freedom of expression you can impart with their design and construction. Just what I needed for my next venture.

So join the 3 string revolution, don’t be too precious and let the slide rip!

We can post cigar box guitars worldwide – please contact us for a quote.
