Cigar Box Ukulele DIY Kit - Everything Included - Download Instructions for Free!
Notes bloom and ring out in our Cigar Box Ukulele kits. Make a fully playable instrument with a vintage "throwback" look. Everything is here, from the neck, fretboard...even the box!
This is a complete, ready-to-assemble box ukulele kit designed in the C. B. Gitty workshops to allow just about anyone to build a fun, easy-to-play concert-scale instrument. We have taken all of the guess-work out of it - every part and piece that you will need is included in the kit, and our fully illustrated 14-page assembly guide will walk you confidently through building your uke.
No other instrument has the bright, happy sound of a nylon-string ukulele, and now you can build your own. We have worked hard to create this kit in such a way that it is straightforward to assemble - only basic tools and woodworking skills are needed. You can do it!
The cigar boxes we supply with this kit may not have actually held cigars, rather it may be a plain wooden box. This allows infinite customization. It will, however, be guaranteed to be of a great size for ukuleles.

Kit Add-on Options:
Add a Pickup: You can choose to add either our basic piezo/jack pickup harness, or the more advanced Disc-o-Tone harness that includes a volume control. Check out this article for how-to info on how to install the basic piezo harness. The Disc-o-Tone harness comes with printed installation instructions.
Add a Digital Tuner: A digital chromatic tuner is a very handy thing to have, when it comes to keeping your ukulele in tune. There are plenty of websites that will sound off the pitches for the strings, so you can tune by ear, but a digital tuner tells you exactly when you're on the note.
Get Spare set of Strings: It never hurts to have a spare set of strings around in case you break one. These are the same strings that are included in the kit.
Need a How-to-Play Book?: If you are new to the Ukulele, this book and accompanying CD will have you happily plinking away in no time.
