What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Unique sound, easy to build, a blast to play! They have such a bluesy soulful sound that I love. There's something completely unique and so personal/satisfying about each build. The cbg community is amazing! So supportive and kind to one another.

Glad to hear wfret is useful. If you are using really different scale lengths or turnings check out my blog article on string weights and tension. It can make a big difference on how your instrument sounds. I've included another program that does the calculations. Have fun building.
