"I thought so!  You are the guy that did the Ohio shaped head stock on an Ohio LPG.  This one is very nice too - headstock, Chicago 'fret markers' - this looks like what Jake or Elwood Blues would be playing.   That…"

"Awesome! I am working on an Illinois build myself. I too thought about that for my headstock. I am passing it up though for another idea.  Check the pic out on "what's on your workbench" thread. "

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Google
How many instruments have you built so far?
I purchased one on eBay. I've built only one with more in the works.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I cant believe the sound these guitars make with such simple parts, and also easy to play. I scrounged up a cigar box,the hardware and strings from around the house. I bought a 1x2 and built the "Uncle Crow" in about an hour and then I was strummin away.
