How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Through Ben "Gitty" Baker of
How many instruments have you built so far?
As I don't keep count, it's tough to say. However, I can tell you I've built enough CBGs to know I'm pretty well hooked.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The DIY spirit.

Even though a cigar box guitar can be a wonderfully complex and intricate work of functioning art, I prefer the simpler, folk art aspect of building CBGs.

And while I do buy many parts to build my guitars -- as opposed to building with 100% repurposed objects -- each instrument I've built makes me feel a little closer to the DIY spirit that I love about the people who built the country in which I live.
