The biggest challenge with creating some instrument designs, is how to fit a standard size 6 string pickup. Often times a cigar box guitar needs heavy bracing in order to withstand the amount of cutting required to fit a large pickup into it. The alternative has been to install piezoelectric transducers. For some this is sufficient but issues like feedback make using such an instrument on stage difficult. Little Box Guitars has design solutions for magnetic pickups that all but eliminates these issues while sounding more like a real electric guitar than with piezoelectric. Like all of our products, carefully designed and expertly crafted. Click on the image below to view the gallery of some of our pickup designs.
