275 guitars, banjos, ukes, mandolins, electric basses, and violins. 88 amps
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
It's fun to find a cool box and build an instrument to suit. I learn more tricks with every build and have expanded my use of exotic hardwoods in the necks. My hobby went berserk and I'm now building most any stringed instrument that can be made from a cigar box.
