Product Description

Abraham Lincoln needs little introduction. The 16th President of the United States had a reputation of honesty, compassion and of being a great orator. Like its name sake, this guitar is sure to speak to the crowd in a way they will never forget.

This beautiful piece is one of our line of "illustrated" guitars, designed to capture the essence of fundamental, no-frills stringed instrument crafting. To the sturdy, no-frills frame (tone-rich wooden cigar box, hardwood neck & fretboard, solid tried-and-true hardware), we add a beautiful, full-color piece of artwork, uniquely vivifying the instrument and drawing the eye of all who see it. This handcrafted guitar has a full, rich acoustic tone (and a built-in contact pickup, if you want to amplify it), a nice high ringing treble voice, and is simply a joy to play. Best of all is the affordable price on this hand-crafted-in-the-USA piece of musical art.

The demo video below shows another guitar in this same line, built with the exact same methods but with a different decal - the sound is the same!

The soundboard artwork is printed in full color on special weatherproof polyester film, and is adhered to the box with a permanent, weather-proof adhesive. These are built from new, unbranded wooden cigar boxes, which have never held cigars and have no connection to the tobacco industry.
