Acoustic Medium 3-String Cigar Box Guitar Strings – Low Open G
(as of Jul 11, 2022 01:51:23 UTC – Details)
This is a set of 3 strings voiced specifically for a 3-string cigar box guitar (CBG) that you want to tune in a "Low Open G" (GDg). I call this set the "Uncle Enos Blues Blaster", in honor of the early folk story about Uncle Enos and his cigar box guitar. Open G is a great setup for slide (fretless) playing, and these thicker, heavier wound strings give you a much deeper, bass-heavy sound that can really be great for grinding out the blues. These are medium-gauge strings, meant for guitars that are going to be played more heavily or from which you want a stronger sound. #1 – .044" Bronze Wound #2 – .034" Bronze Wound #3 – .026" Bronze Wound For best results with reaching the desired tuning, these should be used on a CBG that has a scale length (the length from the nut to the bridge) in the 24-26" range. Much longer or shorter than that and the strings will either be too loose and sloppy, or so tight that they break before they reach the pitch. This string set is formulated based on our own experimentation and what has worked on our own guitars. If you want to hand-pick specific strings in specific sizes, this may not be the pack for you. But if you are not sure exactly what you need and want a set of inexpensive strings that should work just fine for your build, this is the ticket.
