None. I perform with cigar box guitars
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I find everything about cigar box guitars interesting! I currently perform with two HamBone CBG's. The tone and the mojo of these instruments opened up a whole new world with regard to sound, performance and songwriting. I've fallen in love with performing all over again. I plan on recording new material playing these guitar and, when the pandemic passes, I intend to tour using only my cigar box guitars. The Martin, the telecaster and stratocaster will be getting a well-deserved rest. There is a freedom to these instruments. I'm originally from eastern Kentucky and with the CBG's you can blues-rock or slow down with an earthy, haunting melody. I love them!
