The "Star Spangled" 3-string Acoustic/Electric Cigar Box Guitar
With a beautiful, full-wrap color print of a rustic American Flag, this hand-crafted "Star Spangled" cigar box guitar is looks as good as it sounds!
Designed and built by C. B. Gitty, and with most of the parts made right here in our workshops in Gonic, New Hampshire, this amazing-sounding guitar is tuned to open 3-string GDG, the de facto tuning standards 3-string cigar box guitars.
We also include a bonus "Player's Pack" with every guitar, which includes a 60-page songbook with how-to-play lessons, a chord poster, guitar picks & More!
Also don't forget to grab a copy of one of Ben's songbooks! He has a whole line-up of 3-string tablature songbooks, and also the Four-String Songbook by Ben Gitty, featuring 30 beloved songs arranged for four-string GDGB guitars - which is what you build with this kit!
Here is a testimonial for the kit version of this guitar from customer Ron H: "Got my Tupelo Tenor kit Thursday. I am very happy with it. It sounds great. Took your advice and am approaching it like a whole new instrument. I've been playing in a form of open G (DGBD) but this is better. Especially the chord forms. I am very happy with the four string songbook. Your material is great. Thanks to you I now am understanding how to move from single string melody playing to choral melody playing. I've needed this info for a long time. THANK YOU."
