Playboy, Cigars, & Rock n' Roll

Jimi Hendrix, Roy Clark and Carl Perkins are just a few of the famous bluesmen or country singers that started their careers on homemade cigar box guitars. CBGs were originally made and played by depression-era jug band members who specialized in making instruments out of anything they could get their hands on. Despite having its origins in poverty, cigar box guitars have become a highly sought after addition to many musician’s collections. Daddy Mojo Guitars have been used onstage or in recordings by artists such as U2’s The Edge, Jack White, and Counting Crows. Each handmade guitar comes equipped with a maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, Spanish cedar box, and hot mini-humbucker pick-up for amplification.
