Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Watching Samantha Fish videos
How many instruments have you built so far?
1 plus a half of two others
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
A community plus a do-it-yourself approach is what makes a genre great. I love stonermetal, goofy genre music, underground hard rock, and old timey musics. Building a CBG lets you try out every tool in the toolshed. Plus, any hobby that lets you lust after the next cool new thing to try is an automatic win.

I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( jamespollard.it@yahoo.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
