Antique cigar box guitars offer one of the greatest glimpses into the history of these instruments.  They allow us to look closely at the parts, the setup and give us new ideas for our own creations.  Even focusing on the wear marks shows us how much these guitars were loved and played. 

In this new video series, I have taken instruments from my own collection and photographed them in detail to give you inspiration.  Each feature is just a minute long and was originally meant as daily posts on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  Enjoy
