It has been a while since I have been on this site. Glad to see people in this area are getting into this great part of folk art called Cigar Box guitars.

Yeah, i stumbled upon this site while researching to build a solid body bass. Done built a one string bass, a two string bass, and a uke. Great fun, great instruments!
I am ready to start another one. I do not mass produce them like some of these guys. I seem to mess up and have to correct my mistakes too much to be fast. I guess that is part of learning as you go. I do love the first time I get good sound out of something that I crafted though. Good feeling. Just waiting on an order from Stewart McDonald.
