One of my stringed instrument creations…started out by finding that small sampler box at my local cigar shop. Then i just happen to have a large brickhouse box and thought wow they would look great together in a guitar build. I added some nice looking exotic`s to it to spice it up a bit. The tailpiece is black n white ebony, the input jack plate and the pickup surround are redwood burl, the bone tip bridge is rosewood burl. The pickup is a 6 pole magnetic type but i don`t like seeing those on a build with a 1×2 neck, so to hide it i made that wood surround leaving the 4 middle poles open then i cut down an allen wrench to use as the rail on the poles. It came out great and sounds awesome. 23 1/2” scale length with dulcimer fretting.
