Own a piece of fine musical instrument art, handcrafted by master craftsman Rob Wrobel of Rob's CBGs. His instruments have been reviewed by Vintage Guitar magazine, and now you can have one of your own.
Rob's passion for these instruments shows itself attention to detail he puts into each one of them. All of his builds contain reclaimed wood, with a minimum age of 20 years for all of the hardwoods used in their construction. He uses only the finest hardware on each build, including many items from C. B. Gitty.
This particular guitar is made with a beautiful La Aroma de Cuba Monarch cigar box and is fretted to a 25" inch scale. The neck is made out of 80 year old reclaimed Hickory with a 110 year old Mahogany fret board with maple fret markers on front and Blackfret dots down the side and a bracing heel made out of 4 different types of wood. The head stock is made out of 3 different types of wood as well and is set up with a carefully crafted bone nut for low playing action. Set above this is a genuine La Aroma de Cuba cigar band.
The guitar has been finished with a clear lacquer that brings the beautiful wood grain to light. Coupled with the supremely low action, this finish makes moving around the fretboard silky smooth.
Set into the neck position is a custom-etched Chrome Snake Oil Humbucker rated for 9.55KOhm with 250 potentiometers for both Volume and Tone. The capacitor of the Tone potentiometer has a rating of 2.2.
