Description

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.

The box (body) of the guitar is printed using our "Vivigraphic" Method: a full-color, photo-resolution printing process using highly durable UV-cured inks, allowing for a precise reproduction of the image (with wood grain showing through any white areas). The image is printed directly onto the box's top panel using very durable, UV-cured inks.

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. 
These are built from new, unbranded wooden cigar boxes, which have never held cigars and have no connection to the tobacco industry.
