Retaining all the authenticity and charm that has appealed to creative musicians ever since Cigar Box Guitars were first crafted and played throughout the USA in the late 1800’s, the underlying theme throughout the exquisite Lace™ Cigar Box instruments, is the professional luthier level of construction and superior hardware, offering excellent playability and exceptional tone.
Visually stunning with custom artwork, the Lace Cigar Box Guitar which is made in Southern California has a fresh sound, designed for ease of playability, delivering Rock, Alternative, Country, Blues or Jazz music on both the three or four string boxes.
Fitted as standard on all 3 and 4 string models the Matchbook™ pickup, made in the USA, is the first patented pickup designed specifically for the Cigar Box Guitar using Lace’s™ Alumitone® “Current Driven” design. The Matchbook™ is designed to resemble an actual Matchbook with the one magnet featured as the “striker”. This innovative pickup operates with a zero noise-floor with double coil power and single coil clarity via a push-pull volume pot and offers a mean or clean tone.
