Cigar Box guitars are fun to play whether you are just learning or if you are a master player looking to have fun with a new sound. These guitars originated in the mid 1800's when people didn't have money to purchase instruments, so they made their own from whatever was on hand: a box, broomstick, cigar box, or even a washboard. Ed has upscaled this functional folk art into beautiful and unique musical instruments. Due to the differences in materials used and Ed's interest in exploring new ideas and sounds, no two guitars will ever look or sound exactly the same. Each one-of-a-kind guitar is easy to play and sounds great plugged in to an amp.
Ed is an artisan craftsman with 30 plus years of experience that is immediately evident in each hand crafted guitar. He is based in Kitchener, Ontario.
