"Black Bird Pies" Cover for 5.5-inch Cigar Box Guitar Resonator Cones
"Sing a song of sixpence, a pocketful of rye. If wishes were a blackbird, this beggar would fly. I'm goin' to Mississippi to get that ol' religion from a big leg woman." - Shane Speal
These resonator cover plates are made from 1/8" Birch Plywood with the words "Black Bird Pies" - in the same style of vintage pie pans from the "Blue Bird Pies" brand and others. Designed by "King of the Cigar Box Guitar" Shane Speal, these covers are designed and manufactured in the USA in the C. B. Gitty workshops. We designed these covers to fit the 5.5-inch "Lightning" cigar box guitar resonator cones designed by Charles Atchison, and they make a great addition to your special CBG resonator build. Because these are bare, unfinished wood, you can stain, finish or paint them as desired to fit your design.
This listing is for the cover plate only - the cone shown in the listing photos is for reference only, and must be purchased separately! (Click here to see the cone listing)
Please note that there are some residual marks left over on the back of the cover from the cutting process. These will not be seen when mounted, but can be removed by some sanding. Their outer diameter is 5 5/8" and the center opening is 2 inches. Each one has eight screw holes for mounting. Please note that the resonator cones do not come with holes so you'll be doing a little drilling to get these mounted. We do not include screws with these plates.
