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.
Thanks... I cant play either, but as you can tell, that don't stop me. Ive been out of building CBG's for a while. Gut got the email about the Christmas album and had to give it a go. After playing my old cbg 3 string,3 string fiddle and diddley bow, excited to get started again. Thanks for the like on my profile.
