How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
CB Gitty

First build, going all out. Gonna make as many mistakes as I can the first time. Red "A. Flores" box, Peruvian walnut piezo bridge pickup and gold tone single-coil bridge with piezo blend active circuit, peruvian walnut fretboard, spalted maple neck, gold mandolin tail piece and gold knobs.

 

Update: Changed the box to a Camacho. Homemade blend circuit works great. Spalted maple looks wonderful, but in retrospect, it probably wasn't a great choice for neck material. I had to laminate it to keep it from warping and it doesn't have much resonance.

 

I think I could make a good video of "what not to do".

License plate resonator with "distressed" oak box.

Posted on January 19, 2015 at 4:34pm 4 Comments

Working on a license plate resonator. Using some wormy oak that I split (rived) in wedges along the radials of the log. I got the idea after I split some for firewood and saw how cool it looked. It will go well with the 1969 Yazoo Mississippi license plate. I plan on using a P90 style handwound pickup with a top carved from the same wood.

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;
