This cigar box guitar is made from a Ventura cigar box called Archetype, this is a super rich blue color, almost metallic, you don't find many blue cigar boxes. The fret board is made from red oak and the neck is made from poplar and has a nice gloss to it. This is an electric cigar box guitar so on the inside it has big piezo pickups and are 6 silver sound holes so you can play it acoustically. This is one of my favorite cigar box guitars I have made. It's for sale on my etsy.com online store, search ThompsonCBG
