What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
It is hard to define what is most interesting but when I built my 1st guitar it generated a fantastic amount of interest with friends & family as nobody believed for one that I was capable of making one & two that it sounded so good.
