Cigar Box Nation member Turtlehead has created a YouTube channel with a bunch of cigar box guitar 12 bar backing tracks. He has several different keys and tempos, so if slow blues or swing blues is your style, he has it covered!
Check it out, and make sure to subscribe to his channel “CBG Jam Tracks”! He is looking for suggestions, so let him know if there is something you would like him to add.
As a longtime fan of Stevie Ray, I felt moved to make a tribute guitar. I found a fellow in the UK that did wood burning, so I ordered a wooden box with that image on it. I purchased a commercially made Strat style neck, and ordered a customized engraved brass plate for the headstock, and a laser engraved neck plate.
In keeping with the Texas theme, I used brass Texas style stars for sound hole covers, and added a custom wound rosewood single coil pickup.
It was sold to a friend of mine very quickly after it was finished, so I never got a chance to do a sound check video. Maybe I can talk him into doing that for me.
When I started building and selling the ThinBucker guitar pickups, I had no idea how popular they would become. I have sold over 100 of them already, and sent them all over the world.
I am still building cigar box guitars, I have just fallen behind due to the numbers of pickups I have had to build to keep up with the demand.
If you see something on my site that appeals to you, I can still take orders. I just have not been able to get any inventory guitars done.
Due to an influx of guitar and pickup orders, and the fact that I am moving to a new house in the coming weeks, I have fallen behind on building guitars and pickups.
If you wish to order a guitar or a pickup, please feel free. But, be aware that it will take several weeks to process your order and get it shipped.
Thanks for understanding.
I have an order form up and working now. You can order pickups HERE:
At this moment I am about 2 weeks behind on getting orders filled, so thanks for your patience.
I have fallen behind in getting a current price list and order form completed for the pickups I am winding.
