It doesn't get more authentic roots music than these instruments. Back in the days of the Depression when no one had any money (hmm, kinda like today!), folks in the Delta made their own instruments from what they had lying around, a busted broom handle, an empty cigar box and some old screen wire and you got yourself a guitar. Like riverboat gamblers with a hot hand we've upped the ante with our rendition of this classic instrument. We've made a 4 and a 3 string version. Both versions come with D'Addario Strings, Custom wired Piezo Transducer, Volume knob, Switchcraft Jack, Bolt on Maple neck with Medium Frets, Bone Nut and Bridge and Grover Gears. The 4 string version includes the Saint Blues classic headstock with normal 24. 75 inch scale fretting. Each one is signed and numbered by our builder, Greg Mitchell. The 3 string is a 24 inch Open Chord Scale (No sharps or Flats) perfect for those just starting out wanting to play the blues.
