Builder & musician, Eric Denton has invented a simple cigar box guitar stand using another cigar box and a dowel rod (or old drum stick)!  These collapsible stands are great for cigar box guitars that don't have a protruding butt-end neck.  

On the stands that he uses a single bolt at the bottom of each foot, the unit becomes collapsible and can fit into a gig bag.

Eric Denton has a brand new cigar box guitar album out, Denton Music.  It is available for streaming right now on Youtube.

nice and elegant 

I've been thinking on how to build a simple CBG stand and here it is, Thanks. BTW, you can get 3' x 5/8" wood dowel @ Walmart for like 58 cents or so...

Awesome idea! I've built 2 so far and they work great even with the butt of guitar protruding through the box. Good work!
