Hello folks! I wanna show my first Diddley Bow guitar.

Firstly, I live at Vladivostok, Russia (yep, it's not common in our region to make cigar box guitars). Mainly that's why the body of my guitar is not a cigar box, but a crafted by myself box from wood. Actually, it resonates pretty cool!

The neck is a usual stick from a mop. The nut is a hose clamp. I also added a tuner.

So, here's a video of my instrument. Hope you'll enjoy!

That's great work, Boris, & nice playing, too. Your box reminds me of a bird house...
