Hitone - HBG Cigar Box Guitar (Tracy Lindsey)
Posted on Jan. 10 2013
This was a gift to Tracy Lindsey for Christmas 2012 from the Lindsey family made by Robert Baker at
HiTone Guitars. The box is not a cigar box but an old Holy Bible box. The pickup is a flat double coil pickup from original flatpup.
This is a hand-made cigar box guitar, made in Richardson, TX.
The Flatpup 4 Humbucker is designed for four-string instruments. This guitar pickup is extremely flat - therefore it normally fits between the strings and the top, thus avoiding big openings; just a small hole to pass the wires is needed. The pickup height is max 0.2" (5mm). Recommended string spacing 0.4-0.43" (10.3-11mm). The coils are humbucker-wound.
