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

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
