Assembles easily using only a few screwdrivers and a small hammer.

The "Pure & Simple" C. B. Gitty 3 String Fretless Slide Guitar Kit assembles easily using only a few screwdrivers and a small hammer. Everything included: cigar box, all parts, and strings, even the slide. Fingerboard is fretless, but marked for easy play. Be playing the Blues within an hour.

This kit builds the traditional "stick on top" style of cigar box guitar, in the style of mountain dulcimers where the neck rests on top of the box instead of running through it. The result is a nice loud CBG tuned with the popular "Open G" tuning of G D G, which is what most of the Youtube how-to-play video presenters use. The string sizes we use are .042" wound (low G), .012" plain steel (high D), .009" plain steel (high G).

Makes a great project to do with kids too. Order today.
