How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
discussion groups
How many instruments have you built so far?
Two from scratch, but I am always working on a guitar.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I like it that you can build a guitar just for that one song if you want. I also like it that often when you make a mistake, the guitar isn't ruined, but has some nice characteristic you never expected.

Welcome aboard, Philip! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).

Up in the Free Resources menu at the top, you will see a number of plans for building and playing cigar box guitars/ukuleles/banjos/dulcimers/violins. I encourage you to download any of the plans, take a look at them, and ask questions from there. Also our site is VERY searchable. I bet you your questions have already been asked, so take a few moments and look around.

Join our Chat sometime (see the bar at the bottom of your browser page). Keep in mind that tho the chat window says there are X number of people online, not all may have the chat window up.

Most of all, have fun!

-Wes
