"So, I've done some reading on the pickups.  If I am following it right the piezo's go under the saddle, I put one of those in my Baby Taylor.   I gather the 3 main acoustic pickups are Transducer, Sound hole and Piezo. …"

CBG from Wine Box?

Hello,  Newbee here... I would like to build a CBG from a wine box.  A close friend died recently, quite suddenly and way too young. He was part of my local music group. Played guitar himself. This wine box was a gift from him, and I thought making a CBG out of it would be a great way to remember him.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I just think the simplicity of the CBG, and the ability to customize and made them unique is cool. As well as the convenience of the small body.
