Seasick Nick: Build and play your own 3 string cigar box guitar

Cigar Box Guitar Build and Play Workshop November 2022

Time & Location

26 Nov, 10:30 – 16:00

The Libertine Pub, 125 Great Suffolk St, London SE1 0BX, UK

Our workshops are a fun way to build your own Cigar Box Guitar.

You need no woodworking skills - if you can draw and cut in a straight (ish) line then you can build your guitar. We are there to help you over the tricky bits and and rescue you from any mistakes that you may make.

We supply all the parts (genuine Havana cigar box, hardwood guitar neck, NewTone  guitar strings - everything you need) and all the tools - we even supply lunch (The Libertine serves great Pizzas) and good company comes as standard.

At the end of the day we string your new instruments, tune them up and spend some time enjoying an introduction on how to play slide cigar box guitar. You'll soon be playing "Foot Stompin" music.

This is where my brother John and I will be on the last Saturday in November. The confirmation email says "if you have a small guitar practice amp please bring it along with you so you can play you very own cigar box guitar." The best way to get there is a twenty odd minute tube journey on the Northern line; the 'Wood to Borough. So we will be constructing these three string guitars in the pub all day, before heading back and coming back up out of the underground opposite the Standard. Three sheets to the wind, carrying guitars we made ourselves along with amplifiers. Liam and his regulars should be very afraid.
