Description

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. Every build is one-of-a-kind and contain 100% reclaimed wood. He makes them all by hand, with no patterns or jigs. He uses only the finest hardware on each build, including many items from C. B. Gitty.

This particular guitar is made out of an Cigar Factory box and is fretted to a 25" inch scale. The neck is made out of reclaimed Red Oak. Maple fret markers set off a nice contrast along the Walnut fretboard and has white fret dots down the side.

It also features a 3-tone headstock and  through-body heel. Fitted with a carefully crafted bone string retainer and a zero fret for low playing action. Set above this is a genuine Cigar Factory cigar label. Rob extends a lifetime warranty on workmanship of all of his instruments and designs them to be maintained without ever having to open the box.

The chrome hardtail bridge has rolling saddles, to help reduce stress on the strings. In addition, the strings have been fed through the bottom of the box for better string tension and sustain. 

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. The action and intonation have been adjusted for comfortable play and each individual saddle can be adjusted to further fine-tune to your tastes.

Set into the neck position is a Snake Oil Mini Humbucker pickup that rate around 9.7k Ohm with 250 potentiometers for both Volume and Tone. The capacitor on the tone is an orange drop .022 Orange drop cap on Tone and a .001 cap with 4 watt resister treble bleed circuit on volume
It also features a chrome jack plate with a brass collar and everything has been grounded to reduce and avoid feedback.
