MGB Guitars is proud to introduce its Fat Bottom guitar body kit. This is the same body that MGB has used to create his unique cigar box mosaic guitars. Measuring roughly 12 inches by 16 inches the kit includes a 1/4 top panel with a cut out for a 1 ½ inch neck, two ¾ inch thick center rings and a 1/4 inch bottom panel that includes pilot holes on the back side should you wish to mount with screws. Approximately 2” in depth/thickness. Shaped more like a traditional guitar this blank box provides a perfect canvass for creating your own piece of art. Check out the gallery of pictures to see what Mike and others have done with these bodies.

Assembly Tips for the MGB Fat Bottom Body Kit:
To assemble the 2 inner rings, we recommend applying a generous amount of wood glue on the top of the "inner bottom" layer, apply the "inner top" layer over top of it, and use several clamps to tightly hold in place. Be sure to wipe any excess glue away. Let the glue dry fully before removing from clamps.
If the cigar box mosaic look is something you are interested in, this is how we lay it out. After you decide where each piece is going to be placed, use wood glue to apply to the top.
The back panel is lined with pre-drilled holes so that you can screw to the inner rings. You can wood glue the back as well if you prefer not to use screws, simply flip the back panel over so that the pre-drilled holes are facing inside and out of view.
