There is one rule for cigar box guitars and that is: ‘There ain’t no rules…. So you build ‘em how you like, string ‘em how you like and play ‘em how you like’. At Brookwood Guitars, we try and use reclaimed timbers whenever possible with timber such as old railway sleepers, skirting and lining boards from an old house, each guitar has a story to tell.

Brookwood Guitars recently introduced a steampunk range of guitars which are inspired by technology important to the Victorian era, such as steam power, clockwork and electricity.
