  • Can anyone identify the guitar McCartney was playing with reunited Nirvana?

    That was a crazy looking guitar Paul was playing. Something Billy Gibbons or Bo Diddley would play. It sounded like a slide guitar but he was using his fingers or did he have a slide on, I couldn't tell.



    If anyone can identify the guitar Paul used I'd really like to know!

    It was a cigar box resonator guitar. Not sure of the brand. Lots of people make cigar box guitars. Look on Etsy.com or eBay.



    Here's one guy that makes 'em: http://www.deepcreekstrings.com/2008...-guitar-2.html





    And another: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hoochbobble?ref=seller_info
    No sig.

            It was built by Matty Baratto, he's active at the cigar box nation and handmade music club house forums.

              also, not technically a guitar. a 4-string, pretty short-scale, probably baritone uke. Who knows how it was tuned, probably some open chord...

                I kinda disagree here...a cigar box guitar can be almost anything you want it to be as long as you can tune it properly...my CBG makes a perfect tenor guitar.

                      It's a 4 string cigar box resonator (cigfiddle) played with a slide. It was made by Matty Baratto (HTTP://barattoguitars.com/?page_id=9 ) I have played a few of Matty's creations.
