Lace Music™ announces the 2019 art and tone inspired collection of our Cigar Box Guitars featuring the patented Matchbook™ Pickup, which offers a mean or clean tone.
The Lace™ Cigar Box Guitar has a fresh sound, designed for ease of playability delivering Rock, Alternative, Country, Blues or Jazz music on both the three or four string boxes.
The Matchbook™ is the first patented pickup designed specifically for the Cigar Box Guitar using Lace’s™ Alumitone® “Current Driven” design. The Matchbook™ is designed to resemble an actual Matchbook with the one magnet featured as the “striker”.
The collection of Lace™ Cigar Box Guitars maintain our hand built approach to building the Cigar box and neck using high quality materials like mahogany, a double truss Hard Rock Maple neck for stability.
The bridge is a steel plate design offering 20mm of adjustability allowing for perfect intonation of each string. The Tuners are open gear type reminiscent of classic vintage instruments and sport a 14:1 gear ratio.
