Maine Central Railroad - 3-String Cigar Box Guitar featuring artwork by Danny Woodman
This beautifully hand-made 3-string cigar box guitar was built by Dan "Deke" Caldwell in C. B. Gitty's New Hampshire Workshop, and features a cigar box hand-painted by Danny Woodman. The box/body of the instrument features the famous "Pine Tree" logo of the Maine Central Railroad, which operated in northern New England for many years, including over the storied Mountain Division.
This guitar has a scale length of 25 inches and is tuned Open G G-D-G. It is fretted, with a poplar neck and fretboard. It is strung with high/tenor/folk strings, but could be restrung with a lower blues set if desired.
