Thank you Granpa for my guitar. I will not fail to post image and video when it is finished be sure! And yes, France is still a great blues country indeed. I live near cahors where a big blues festival takes place every year. Very good programming indeed! As for building cigar boxes, I don't pick them up in the tobacco shop to make guitars. I am infected with the CBG construction virus I confess! :p

Enjoy!

C Wolff, I just your your other post with the "Twin". Nice looking git. Be sure to post your finished pic's.

C Wolff, nice link to the French cigar box guitar forum. Not surprised to see a big blues following in France, as many fine blues players couldn't live on their gigs in the U.S.A. during the 60's and 70's.Lots of players found great success in Europe, and France in particular. Are you building cigar box gits?
