About

Here at cigarboxguitars.co.uk we’re passionate about all sorts of stringed instruments from diddley bows to lap steel guitars and even standard electric and acoustic guitars, but our main passion is cigar box guitars.

We love the way that you can take a box, length of wood, some strings and other widely available hardware and make a fully functional musical instrument in a matter of hours. This website will give you all the information and plans needed to make your own cigar box guitars, whether they are simple acoustic guitars or more elaborate electric incarnations.
