FINALLY! An inexpensive magnetic pickup for 3-string Cigar Box Guitars!
For years, cigar box guitar builders have been asking for 3-pole pickups specifically for 3-string cigar box guitars, but that has always been the rather pricey realm of the hand-wound pickup makers. Now, those days are over, with the introduction of the C. B. Gitty “Electric Delta” 3-pole single-coil pickup. With its laser-engraved wood-top bobbin, wooden bobbin base and pre-wired 1/4″ output jack, popping one of these little growlers into your next cigar box guitar build is a no-brainer.
Priced as low as $16.99, this pre-wired pickup system is ready to install, no soldering or additional wiring required.
This is the classic Beatles song, beautifully rendered by Shane Speal on his stage-beaten and time-worn Macanudo 3-string cigar box guitar. Shane really captures the dark and subtle depth of this simple yet nuanced tune.
We’ve covered the popular Open G “GDG” and the Open D “DAD” tunings so far here on CigarBoxGuitar.com – so what would you like to see next? We are looking to finish off the popular 3-string tunings before moving on to anything more advanced. The remaining “standard” open chord 3-string sets are certainly options: EBE, AEA, CEC, FCF… then of course there is a range of “full chord” 3-string tunings, that include all 3 tri-tones in a chord: GBD, DF#A, EG#B, etc.
Let us know what you’d like to see and we’ll try to make it happen!
