"Tin Pan Alley" 3-String Paint Can Resonator Guitar Kit

C. B. Gitty $69.99

This guitar kit sounds like the Deep South, circa 1928.  The Tin Pan Alley delivers the iconic classic metallic, Delta Blues tone in a cigar box guitar kit.  Play it fretted or use a slide.  The secret to the tone is the paint lid resonator.

It was a warm summer day when we were spitfiring ideas for new kits in the Gitty workshop,  and we came to the conclusion that something was missing from our lineup. Thus began our quest for an affordable, easy to build 3-String Resonator guitar that can be built with simple hand tools - and we think we nailed it!

This kit utilizes a modified version our popular 8 1/2" x 11" Box Kit for the body, one of our 3-String Fully Fretted 25" Inch Scale Necks and a gallon-sized paint can lid. This is one of our "blank slate" style of kits, with unfinished box and neck - you can decorate it in many different ways to make it your own. Painting, staining, decoupaging, woodburning, inking... the possibilities are nearly endless. Create a piece of playable musical art!

The kit also includes some of the more common CBG components such as:

  • 1 - Set of 3-String Chrome Open Gear Tuners (2 Left/1 Right) 
  • 1 - Set of 8 Nickel-plated Box Corners
  • 1 - Set of 2 Chrome candle-cup sound inserts
  • 1 - Maple Small Banjo-style Bridge
  • 6 - Long Shank Brass Eyelets
  • 1 - Blues Blaster Acoustic Medium Strings
  • 2 - Drywall Screws
  • 2 - Bracing Blocks
