I recently saw a video of a nyatiti.It is an african instrument that has a beautiful  harp-like sound.It's made from a gourd,but I thought why not a cigar box nyatiti? Granted the fullness of a gourd compared to a cigar box would be  somewhat different.But a nice LasCabrillas might be interesting nonetheless...heres the video of the instrument..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LC71Ne5MwB0
