It’s actually a soap box not a cigar, the neck is fashioned from a piece of timber off the wall of my house whilst doing a bathroom renovation, the pickup from a broken strat copy, as is the tuners, I shaped a piece of Aluminium propeller plate over the tail , and glued a veneer of redwood on the neck,She holds its tune, and has s nice tone. Can play acoustic 6 string so made this one a slide. Put it through a vintage phaser and a good dose of reverb and it sounded out of this world. Love it. Already half way through my next one, a half arsed resonator 3 string.
