"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. I'd like to make it a 6 string acoustic/electric hollow body.   Since it isn't actually a cigar box, I'm wondering about a few things.  The box is wider, deeper and taller than most cigar boxes. …See More

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.
