Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
How many instruments have you built so far?
Almost completed my tenth CBG.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
CBG's have provided me with a new and enjoyable interest, whether I am building one or playing (I started learning to play and build in 2017) They have also revived my interest in folk, rock and blues. I enjoy listening to the music and watching the performers. I am developing and working on my own CBG music material.
