I've always built my own boxes, mainly due to the ridiculous price of actual cigar boxes in the UK. However, I came across this box & thought it would be fun to build one "Shane" style-ish as my first. Nothing special, Macanudo box, side soundhole, fretless poplar neck-thru with oak top, woodburned sidemarkers, 22 scale, piezo under bridge, tuned GDG.

Cheers AGP # :)) ~ I must admit it helps your skill & imagination to have to make boxes too.

Nice Basic CBG Denbo, Cigar Box Builds are what it's supposed to be all about, but I know where your coming from in regard to the price of a decent size Cigar Box, we have the same problem in the Land Down Under  :-)

Thanks for the Likes & Comments Guys :))  Yes Bob when car boot season starts around here I'll be scouring a few for who knows what. Cheers UJ & Poorness, there's a lot to be said for simple, it's fun to just grab & play. Quiet-ish unplugged but amazingly good plugged in.

I consider this to be the quintessential CBG formula... from my perspective anyway. Love it!

Good look to it, Denbo.

Nice one Denbo,  You're right, particular cigar boxes are not cheap in UK.  Have been able to get get a few at a reasonable price when I happen to trawl the antique/flea markets and haggle a bit.  Online can be... "competitive".
