The Ugly Bass-jo - outside test.

"Seriously Legit! I’m not up on what people have put together in the past, or if this is common, but using weed whack line is genius. Sounds great ...and is easier to transport than your average upright!"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I consider my stuff playable folk art. I look for instruments in junk. Cans, hub caps and what not. Most of my wood is barn dried from the family farm here in West TN.
