"Nora" Vintage Movie Poster Illustrated 3-string Cigar Box Guitar "Nora" Vintage Movie Poster Illustrated 3-string Cigar Box Guitar


"Nora" Vintage Movie Poster Illustrated 3-string Cigar Box Guitar

Farmington Road Instruments $149.99

Who was Nora? What were her sins? We haven't seen the movie, so we're not sure... but we are sure of this: We've taken a tone-rich wooden box, a vintage risque movie poster art from the 1930's, a hardwood, fretted neck and tried-and-true hardware featuring internal acoustic pickup, and we've assembled them into an AWESOME cigar box guitar. 

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 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.

Guitar Specs:

  • Illustration/Design: "Sings of Nora Moran" (reprint of a vintage movie poster from the 1930's)
  • Number of Strings: 3
  • Tuning: Open G "GDG" (high treble folk/country variety)
  • Scale Length: 23 inches (Tenor guitar)
  • Fretting Style: Chromatic
  • Pickup Style: Contact (piezo) direct-wired to Jack
