From underground street performers, to blogs, to Hollywood soundtracks, there’s no denying the rapid growing subculture of the cigar box guitar movement. A leading force in the movement, Pinecone Fletcher, is as committed to keeping tradition alive as to breaking current ideologies of what guitars and music are truly about. Performing with only 3 strings stretched over his fretless, self-made cigar box guitar, Pinecone's sound is a loud and dirty schooling in blues tradition.

Pinecone Fletcher has performed with some of the most respected and influential musicians in American music—Honeyboy Edwards, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pete Anderson, Baby Gramps, Donnie Sumner, Warren Haynes, Joe Bonamassa, and Derek Trucks.

In addition to playing these newly rediscovered instruments, Pinecone is also considered one of the nation's leading builders. Pinecone's Hobo King Guitar Co. is the largest independent cigar box guitar retailer in the world with sales throughout 4 continents. Click Here to go to Hobo King Guitars' website
