What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm a huge fan of old-time American music, blues, and folk.
Because I'm not much of a guitar player, I decided to build the cigar box like a 6 string standard neck. also, I don't have access to an actual cigar box, nor I gave it a try, I enjoy building the box from scratch
