What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Building something that is as beautiful as fun to play. Mixing skills to make every instrument unique. Using newly learned techniques to complete projects. Recycling unused objects/hardware into pieces of art...

Love to round necks, carve headstocks and stain wood. I especially like 3 strings Cigar Box Guitars and have a taste for collector/special edition boxes.

Hi Simon.  It is good to have you for a CBN friend.  I liked your guitars, picks and stand.

Hi Simon. A pleasure to be your friend.  You have an eye for design and style.  Your builds have character.

Regards, Bob.

Once again welcome! Every time I start a new project I feel like a beginner. I like it that way, because I always look for mistakes that can easily become routine. You and about 10,000 other builders myself included are looking for those special box's, the Holy Grail of CBGs.

I would like to welcome you into the asylum. You will find valuable resources, tips and secrets whether you are building for the first time or an old pro at it. Don't  be shy about posting a question or a comment. We are all here to help each other! So once again welcome! BTW I'm a newbie myself and let me say everyone is a friend!
