Move over brand new shiny guitar, Here comes my Cigar Box Guitar!!!

Way back when i was younger I always asked for a guitar,but i didn't get it. My dad would always say " Bo Diddley made his guitar with a cigar box and a piece o' wood". And i always looked athim like as if he were crazy. A few years later, I had a friend that wanted to leave his jacked up guitar at my house. The neck was broken away from the body,with only 3 strings and  he had no intentions of comin' back for it. what do I do with a guitar that can't be played? Bo Diddley! Yeah! That's it! I glued and screwed the broken off neck and bridge to a Hava-Tampa cigar box, thus creating my first guitar and cigar box guitar!
Twenty years later, I discovered "cigar box guitars" group strictly by accident, triggering my long lost love for all things cigar box. Isn't it funny how life comes full circle sometimes?
