i am rob from Austria and new to the CigarBox world. To make musik is one of my favourites and i try to play acoustic guitar Rag and Blues stuff. Surprisingly it took me 50 years to get infected with the CBG virus ...

As result i started my 1st build - a 3 string fretless - and here it is the result. Neck is maple and the fretboard is plum (damned hard ...) and bolt on. The Box origin is Panama, made from Cedar. I was suprised by the sound: loud with long sustain and very good over the amp.

Time to learn slide now ......

Welcome to the sickness. I'm making one now with a homemade Cedar box with a Red Oak neck & fretboard. Cedar has a nice mellow tone.

Yes thats true. All my Guitars have Cedar Tops and the hights are not so harsch like Spruce Top Guitars. I like the sound. If you can get Plumwood for the Fretboard, give it a go, its fantastic but difficult to get.
