Carltone Cigar Box Ukuleles, Basses, and Guitars

Carltone is dedicated to building finely crafted cigar box ukuleles, bass ukuleles, guitars, and other stringed instruments. Every one is handmade at our home in Monroe, Louisiana. We scour our local thrift and antique shops, garage sales, as well as the internet, looking for interesting boxes to become Carltones. It is our sincere wish that yours is a lifelong love affair with your Carltone ukulele, bass, or guitar.

Carltone Cigar Box Ukuleles, Basses, and Guitars are available on Etsy. If you have any questions or if you you'd like to choose your Carltone in person, drop us a line.
