I love making guitars from Cigar Boxes, and thought it would be fun to create a blog for those interested in tracking my progress, and see what's going on in the shop. If you are a potential customer, feel free to email me with any questions.

What's better than a Cigar Box Uke? A twin Necker! I'm finishing this up for a customer. I've been very busy lately. This one is made from a Camacho box (still opens). The Necks are made of Maple, and the Fret boards and accents are made from Purple Heart. Imperial Style Tuners set off the headstocks. The sound hole on this one was the perfect spot for my Barefoot Boogie Guitars signed Logo. Sweet!
Have a customer in California that wants me to do something really different in a Uke. So ... thought I'd make a Twin Neck Uke. This is just a dry fit for now, but it will have both a Concert Uke and a Baritone Uke. Looking forward to this one!
These are a pair of new Ukes I just finished. The Red Harvester (Sold) is made from a 1940 Cigar Box. has an Oak/Purpleheart Neck with Rosewood Fretboard, and a Purpleheart Tailpiece. The La Palina is a 1930 Box. It has an Oak Neck and Bobinga Fretboard and Tailpiece.
