Hand Crafted Cigar Box Guitar
Evidence of cigar box instruments exists from 1840 to the 1860s. The earliest illustrated proof of a cigar box instrument known is an etching copyrighted in 1876 of two Civil War Soldiers at a campsite with one playing a cigar box fiddle.
Our cigar box guitars are hand crafted by John Steinkamp, a professionally trained local musician and artisan. Custom orders are available. For more information about these unique instruments, contact the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
