I am the gringo.

Greetings from New Jersey.
I am a fan of music...well, most music anyway. But, within the past several years, Blues and American roots music has crept into my life. My fascination with these musical forms has led me here. I have finished 4 CBGs and I am amazed at the ease and simplicity of building them, and absolutely stunned by the tonal quality...seeing everyone's pics here has inspired me for years to come with some simple and more complex ideas. Everyday I see a ton of new pics and find myself saying "holy shit..." or "whoa...that's cool." Everyone's input and information is more than helpful and kind...I believe The Nation is a special community. I am home.

Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at kevinmkraft@juno.com  to learn where to send it.

 

Thanks for you time and consideration.

 

- Kevin

the first aid boxes i use to build with,i get from e-bay.if they cost more than 10 bucks i usually don't bid on them. so sometimes i get a few for less than 10 bucks. any kind of box that cost less than ten bucks is worth cutting a hole in it to stick a neck thru yep.

Great looking builds mate. I would love to hear how an actual p'up sounds in a CGB. I'm itching to try it myself.
