Return of my favorite cigar box guitar...

One of these guitars is old enough to drink.  The other two were just born this week. 

The Macanudo is back... and it's even better.

Each morning, I walk to my woodshed and and start making guitars. Well... one CERTAIN guitar, actually. I shape the necks, trace my Renaissance C-hole pattern and cut it out of the box lid, glue, screw, notch and string up.

I repeat these steps every day because I'm writing a book on how to build cigar box guitars. This guitar for sale has been my model and my test subject. I slowly craft the same guitar, day after day, documenting and photographing each step along the way.

Twenty-one of these Macanudo cigar box guitars ($240) will be built during my book writing process. Twenty will be offered for sale. (I'm keeping one for my own performances.) Unlike my original Macanudo, these are loaded with an active preamp with four-band EQ and volume knob. Acoustically, they sound every bit as good as my old standby. Plugged in, they put the old girl to shame.

They're just that much better...

In addition, I just got a shipment of new Smokey Amps ($36.50), including classic Marlboro red, American Spirit green and Kamel red.  

Ok, back to the woodshed I go.  Look for more cool stuff coming up soon.  BTW, I have Skully shirts on order for sizes 2X - 4XL.  Those should be online by next week.

Stay primal!
ps.  I've posted new videos on Youtube in the last two days:

Tomorrow's video revisits the stubby slide techniques for cigar box guitar.  More blues coming after that!
