MGB Guitars is proud to introduce their Easy Box Trappy enclosure. According to Bill Jehle this shape for an instrument body dates to the early 1800s, before cigar boxes were created. This innovative trapezoidal enclosure has two sides with two distinct uses. One with a sound hole and one without.

The box comes in three versions, one with no control plate opening, one with the control plate on the sound hole side and one with the control plate opening on the back. This box was designed and built using the same principles used in acoustic instrument construction. The box is built using purfling and braces to create an incredibly strong and rigid structure. Additional reinforcements were added to key locations to allow when securing bridges. Cover plates are available to cover the sound hole when it is on the back side. 

Measuring 12 1/2 inches long, by 4 1/2 inches at the top, by 8 inches at the bottom and 2 1/2 thick, the box is made from thin ply with a top veneer of Sapele. This box provides a perfect canvass for creating your own piece of musical art. The box head and tail are a full 5/8 thickThey are sufficiently long for almost all styles of builds.

Perfect For Hybrid Designs!

“Trappy” is one of my favorite things yet put forth by the Pro’s at MGB! I built something very “hybrid” with it, video forthcoming. I have purchased two thus far but roll up your sleeves guys cuz I’m comin back for more 🎼🎸
