Welcome to Diddley Bros.
Cigar Box Guitars are great fun to play and provide a direct connection with the origin of the blues.
With this in mind we are dedicated to making instruments that help people experience the essential joy of making music.
Our guitars are finished with care, to best show off the high-quality woods and hardware used, but retain a primal feel in their simplicity – a marriage of the rustic and the refined.
More than 200 instruments down the line we continue to make all our guitars using only hand-tools, it requires patience and time but helps ensure each instrument is still unique.
Thanks for visiting, keep on rockin’!
