Here's the fretboard with the frets filed down. I still had a few high ones, which I had to go back and pound on a bit, or glue and clamp. I hope I've corrected the problems.
I satnav towards Bristol with high hopes-the band I'm playing with are top drawer in my book,plus I've held a private fascination for the Bristol underground art/music scene ever since enjoying Banksy/Massive Attacks' work.I've also checked out Stickees work and he and his art will be present tonight…Continue

Here's a picture of my signature. I sign it, then trace over it with that little blue screwdriver (I use that tool for everything). I get a nice little groove, then write with a pencil again, filling the groove with the pencil lead. That's it, that's how I've always done my signature on these things. Pretty simple, really.
This is how it will look in it's little frame:…Continue
Sorry about that last rant. I am very passionate about this since I worked for a corporation that took away from it’s employees but gave back to themselves like all the employees did not play a role in it.
I was browsing the web regarding cigar box guitars and I’ve noticed a proud American comeback of a tradition that will not let go. Every time I hear music from this instrument and hear someone sing a soulful song along with it. My eyes may swell up with tears, my heart will…Continue

Once you get this information under your…Continue

Now that I’ve built about 17 CBG’s I’ve decided to try my hand at a built-from scratch instrument. Inspired by Rand Moore’s work (http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101/forum/topics/the-boat-paddle-box-the?commentId=2592684%3AComment%3A838455&xg_source=msg_com_gr_forum) and his excellent write-up,…Continue
I am starting my own CBG company; Insolitus Guitars. I chose the name because cigar box guitars are unusual, uncommon and that is what I enjoy most. I love unusual things and music from these instruments is beautiful to me. Even on youtube from the least skilled player the music rings in my ears something sweet. I found out about cigar box guitars in college my sophomore year. I didn't have money for a guitar so I 'googled' DIY (Do It Yourself) guitars online and there they were. They were…Continue
