What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I don't play myself. I came across cbg while I was looking for cigar boxes for other projects. I was just very intrigued by the thought of building one. As with every 1st time project, my wife gets the 1st. I have 2 more in the works. I may actually have to learn how to play now.
