2 string bass. E&A

"Thanks Jerry, Nope, no truss rod. I made the neck out of red oak instead of poplar I normally use for CBG's, so it's good and sturdy. I also used light gauge bass strings. Tuning it up, the tension seems to be fine. So far, so good.…"

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.
