The big news this week is that Cigar Box Nation is getting a new look and feel!
You can check out this forum post to read more of the details. This is the first major update to the site in a few years, and we hired a professional designer for the project, to make sure it will be the best it can be.
We are hoping to install the new design overnight TONIGHT (Thursday, June 18) so get ready! Here is a teaser of part of the new top banner layout for the site...
This week's featured instrument is an oldie but a goody - a beautiful gambling-themed 3-string cigar box guitar built by Adam Kovarik of Australia.

The Festival season is officially under way! Don't forget to check out the Summer 2015 Cigar Box Guitar Festival Guide, put together by Shane Speal and posted on the Nation. There are still lots of great CBG festival and music events coming up!
