Why do you need a headless guitar?
1. Weight and Ergonomics
By omitting the headstock and the tuners, your guitar is going to be lighter. At first it could seem as a minor difference, but If you use your guitar standing up, this is going to be a huge plus for you. You’ll have less pressure on your shoulder while wearing a strap.
2. Easier and quicker string changes
No more fiddling with strings around the tuners. Just insert into the bridge piece and tighten with a hex-wrench at other the end.
3. Travel friendly
No headstock –> shorter instrument, easier to manipulate and carry around.
4. Great looks
Yeah, this is, of course, kind of subjective, but you’re gonna look unique having one of these in your hands.
5. No headstock, no problem
Many headstocks suffer grievous bodily injuries every year, that often end with several separated parts. Without a headstock this won’t happen to you for sure. 🙂
Choose from beautiful body tops
Not only the Cigar box guitar , but the body top will be also a bonus to your headless guitar!
All tops are made by Quality Tonewood.

Cigar box guitar?
We think that the lockdown could be a great opportunity to learn new things. This instrument is similar to a guitar, but still different. The cigar box guitar is a simple chordophone that uses an empty box as a resonator. Also, cigarbox guitars usually do not have frets, the intonation is done with a bottle neck or a slide.
During The Great Depression of the 1930’s there was a resurgence of homemade musical instruments. In those times of need CBG’s got quite popular. – We know, it’s a bit grim but also perfectly aligned to the current surreal situation.
