Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Read about in 'Cigar Box Guitars' book by David Sutton.
How many instruments have you built so far?
Worked on lots of conventional guitars, but no CBG's yet....that is about to change!!!!
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
With a Cigar Box Guitar, ANYONE can be empowered to make music...and that is a very special thing to me as a long time music tutor/ex pro guitarist. They are also very inspiring to play and really make you think about being creative. In a word, I'm HOOKED!!!!

Thanks, Brian.  I was thinking we were already CBN friends - or I would have asked..  And thanks, it's good to have you for an official CBN friend.
