This was a special order cigar box guitar I built for a lady in Atlanta, Ga. This one really sounded sweet she wanted a case to protect it so this was my first at building a case

Bill that is so cool
Brings cigar box guitars to a new level
Would love to see someone open up the case at a big concert hall
Might be to posh for Seasick Steve though. :)

Absolutely LOVE the sound hole covers !

These must be a new addition to CB Gitty’s catalog.
They didn’t have these last time I ordered from them (a year ago).
I picked up brass kick plate from tossed out storm door and was going to make my own.
Thanks for the Gitty update, they have some great stuff now.

Keep up the good work!!

Hi: I need a guitar case for my cigar box guitar. I want something light weight and simple. I like what you did. Mine doesn’t even have to be that fancy. Maybe thinner wood. Pls contact me, I’d like to hire you. Thanks.
