Welcome to! Suspect Device builds cigar box guitars and other handmade musical instruments from recycled materials. Instrument necks are carved by hand, and made from domestic and exotic woods. Each piece is constructed individually in the studio in Saco, Maine.

This website has information about the Suspect Device pieces and how you can get one home. To order an instrument or ask a question, email me here.



This little 1920s find came from a bundle of forgotten cigar boxes hidden away in a barn and used to store old hardware. With a little retooling and a new custom neck made from exotic woods, it's come back to life with zest and is waiting to unleash its twang on the world.
