Project Description

Cigar Box (Hill Harp)

This Dobro style lap steel instrument has a 31″ scale with a split, solid brass, intonation adjustable bridge. The strings are .065, .028, .018, .016″ and require different scale lengths due to the variation in string mass for perfect intonation at the 12th fret.

The Mahogany neck is reinforced with carbon fiber with brass flush frets in an ebony fret board and ebony peg head and heel. The tuners are Gotoh sealed mini bass and high ratio guitar tuners. The cigar boxes come from a variety of producers. The pickup is a Lace square neck Dobro sensor.

This is the version that I created in cooperation with Harry Manx.

PRICE range from $450 to $950
