Hi. I'm Blues Frog and I can't stop thinking about, (and building) cigar box guitars.
I first discovered Cigar Box Guitars in Dec ember when I was Christmas shopping. Since then I've built 5 and bought two.
Recently I bought materials to build 4 more, but am working on 6 more. I need HELP, and there's more in the making. I can't make it through the night without thinking of a new design.
I recently started some new necks. I started at 4, and has grown to 5, but there's a sixth one that I have in my head.
Somebody help me. I've tried drinking, drugs, and other addictions, but nothing can fulllfill the need to build MORE cigar box guitars. What can a poor musician do?
HAHAHAHA! Did a bit of that today and got some nice maple for necks. Looks like 12 neck if all goes well, as well as some for ukelele necks, which I've never payed. Guess that'll change. Last week I got oak strips roughly the width of necks, the perfect thickness for fretboards. Also got some nice tins today. I've never played banjo but grabbed a cookie tin to make one and a large tin for a game Deal or no Deal, I think will make a very nice bass. When not helping people I was working on build number 2, when I got home I just couldn't stop!
All you can really do is build another one to ease the pain, but be warned, We will have an intervention if you start building "Hello Kitty" CBG's !!
Unless of course you are building for the Japanese market. Hello Kitty is very big over there.
