Hi, I'm Wichita Sam and I make custom Cigar Box Guitars...... I live in Wichita, Kansas, U.S.A. I took up building Cigar Box Guitars as a lark, and have fallen in love with the craft. I have found nothing else that approaches a cigar box guitar to release a burst of creativity in the artist/musician. I am now writing and performing... things that I thought was lost in the long past.
What I would like to do is offer you the opportunity to acquire a one of a kind Cigar Box Guitar (CBG). I enjoy partnership with my clients to build the CBG of their dreams. I want to know what kind of music you play, what your design preferences are. From there, I design and build a CBG with you involved in every step of the process.
I have built and sold everything from one stringed Diddley Bows, to CBukuleles, CBbanjos, CBdulcimer sticks, CBGs in all manner of configuration (2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 string, with piezo and magnetic pups, tone and volume controls) and a variety of Bass CBGs including everyting from a full scale upright Bass CBG to ultra short scale Bass CBGs. Wichita Sam CBGs are in the hands of professional musicians and rank amatuers. In additional to giving you a unique sound, they are true American folkart.
Prices range for $ 99.00 to as much as you want to spend.... If you want a guitar that will get you noticed and then get you heard... Wichita Sam is your man...
Call me at 316.655.0423 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit here often, I'll be upgrading and posting a gallery of completed CBGs. I'll leave you with a snapshot of a project I just completed for a U.S. serviceman stationed in Iraq. I think with a nickname of "Jake the Snake", no one will confuse who this guitar belongs to. I hope it provides him hours of fun and relaxation until his safe return home.
Thanks for looking. Maybe a special, custom made Wichita Sam CBG is in your future....
"I am Wichita Sam".
