"Orient Express" 3-string Illustrated Cigar Box Guitar - featuring old railroad postcard art

Farmington Road Instruments $159.99

This guitar will really put some steam back into your musical engine. Depicting the classic "Orient Express" train running through the Cascade Mountains, this was a color postcard from the halcyon days of American railroading and makes this guitar a striking work of art.

We also include a bonus "Player's Pack" with every guitar, which includes a 60-page songbook with how-to-play lessons, a chord poster, guitar picks & More!

This beautiful piece is one of our line of Illustrated Guitars, designed to capture the essence of great-sounding and easy-playing instrument crafting. To the sturdy 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.

  • Illustration/Design: "Orient Express"
  • Number of Strings: 3
  • Tuning: Open G "GDG" (high treble folk/country variety)
  • Scale Length: 23 inches (Tenor guitar)
  • Fretting Style: Chromatic
