Jim Brown replied to Virginia Bill's discussion Shipping in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"I tape together two identical boxes (maybe amazon boxes or Bark boxes), cut a channel between them for the neck, and bubble wrap the instrument. Peghead and body are both protected / cradled that way. Sorry ... a picture would be more helpful."

"Rigid foam insulation is light weight and can also be a good friend to keep things from shifting around in the box."

"You might make your own box if the local music store can not give you one. I would be hard pressed to ship something so beautiful though. Lots of bubble wrap and peanuts..."

"I have been able to get a couple guitar shipment boxes from my local music store. They receive them and often have no use for them. You will probably have to cut it down a tad. I have also cannibalized other large corrugated boxes."

Hello,
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
