How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
internet
How many instruments have you built so far?
2 diddley bows.Building first 3 string now
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Figured I would buy one, learn to play it, then try my hand at building a diddley bow and progress from there. bolts for bridges and hinges for tailpieces are the two things that really sold me.
