Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Whispers in the wind... but mostly the internet
How many instruments have you built so far?
34 cigar box ukulele + 3 amps
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The build... that moment when the box tells me what it should be. I don't just grab a box and start building something, I look for the right box and wait until I see a clear vision of what it should be... what it WANTS to be! I want my instruments to be just that, instruments. I am a musician, so I create something playable 1st and foremost. I want my instruments to be art secondly. Something you would be proud to hang on the wall... but playable when you take it down. Playable Art.
I also love seeing the moment someone connects with one of my instruments! The smile when they first see it, and then they look in their eyes when they actually start making music on it is priceless. When they realize that this is NO NOVELTY ITEM!

Also pictured on our page but not shown here is Grammy award winning Casting Crowns Lead Guitarist Josh Mix with our memorial build "Ukulele Ray", and guitarist Juan DeVevo with our very first Bible Box Ukulele, "BBKing".

If I had realized we were not CBN friends, I would have asked you long ago.  Good to have you for a friend.  Love your builds.
