Hello and Welcome, Here we have an amazing little instrument hand made by JDiChiara in Cornelius North Carolina USA. Check out this youtube link This is not your average CBG guitar. Let's start with the neck. 3 piece of quarter saw oak with 1/4" steel non adjustable truss rod. This is now our standard after seeing so many other cbg guitars come in with warped necks. Rose wood fret board with beautiful custom inlays and side dot markers, mahog,walnut,pine inlayed scarf joint headstock and 20 Dunlop jumbo #150 fret wire. Action is set for fret board fingering ease and slide playing 25 1/2 scale. Fat fancy inlayed tail end and the neck block travels all the way down to the bottom of the Lost city box body and screwed in through the back. This makes for outstanding strength and beautiful sustain. As you see a lot of work and effort goes into our CBG necks to make them last a lifetime and look beautiful. These necks can handle any tuning as well as any strings you desire. The top lid of the box has also been reinforced using pine, maples and other hand selected tone woods. We can't count how many CBG guitars that have come into the shop with warped lids this is now a standard in our builds. The internal walls of the box have also been beefed up. We also added to the box to make it deeper with walnut/maple skunk stripe all the way around the box. This also adds to the tone of our CBG instruments and feel like a real instrument in your hands. The weight of these are very comfortable. The tone is way beyond what you would expect. They sound HUGE !! We use all kinds of tone woods from Brazil, Italy, Spain, Germany. This outstanding 4 string Blues CBG has 2 killer beautiful sounding custom blade humbuckers in the bridge position and in the neck position 3 way pickup selector toggle and a 3 way toggle custom mod switch with volume and tone control and metal chrome top hat knobs rustic aged looking stained box and sealed. Box is 3 1/2"D x 9 5/8"L x 9"w. Threaded rod style Nut and custom designed bridge made of cherry and 4 sealed tuning keys. Musical bluesman Art work really add a killer touch to this beast. JDiChiara has been making custom hand made guitars , amps, pedals, pickups for over 25 years and put an amazing amount of love into this and every thing he makes. This guitar will play itself that's how sweet it is. I don't think the pictures do this guitar justice as it is prettier in person. Every guitar is a one of a kind and original some have small imperfections in the boxes but that just adds to the rustic and character of these blues boxes. Mr. Leroy's sound kicks butt a hot bridge pickup to turn up the heat when you need it. Thank you for checking out this item and purchase with confidence. 100% feedback seller !!
