My name is PFC Nowak and I just recently deployed to Khandahar, Afghanistan. I have been here for about a month and i started seeing people with some of these cigar box guitars. One of the LTs that i am deployed with showed me this website after I was playing with his CBG. I was wondering if there is any way that I could have a 6 string like his sent over here. If it is possible it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Stephen,

Welcome to the Nation and thank you for your service to your country.

I don't personally make 6 string models since I prefer not to mess with truss rods or reinforced necks, but some of the builders here do. We will see if we can't fix you up with something.


That would be awesome, thank you very much.

If we can't rustle up a builder for a 6 string, can you settle for a 3 or 4 string model?

Sorry i took so long to reply, sometimes it gets hard to find time to get to a computer. I will settle for anything that you can send, and again thank you very much.

Thanks Linda. If you could send one to PFC Nowak that would be awesome!
