The "Oliva V" - Special Edition Fretted Cigar Box Guitar
It's hard to beat a traditional design when it sounds this darn good. Fully fretted to a 23-inch scale, this 3-string acoustic/electric cigar box guitar is strung "High G" GDG. It is considered a "neck through" model cigar box guitar, where the neck runs through the inside of the cigar box.
Hand-crafted by Dan "Deke" Caldwell in the C. B. Gitty workshop, the body of this guitar is made out of a thin all-wood cigar box that produces an impressive acoustic presence. Paired with our High Open GDG set, it presents a banjo like sound that will have you pickin' and grinnin' in no time. It could also be restrung with our low G "Blues Set" to get a lower, growly sound if desired.
