In progress: Electric Racket & 1941 RCA Victor guitar amp

Posted on June 23, 2014 at 1:55pm 1 Comment

My first Cigar Box Guitar build will begin this week, but this past weekend, I started working out some issues with this wacky "Electric Racket" guitar.





This is not really a "serious" design (obviously) but I do plan on having some fun in experimenting with different pickups, including the cheap single coil (pictured) and a couple of older humbuckers that I…

Giving brass that aged look...

Posted on June 9, 2014 at 5:30pm 6 Comments

Are you interested in giving bright brass that aged look? How about MULTIPLE ways to do it?

http://blog.yourstruli.com/2008/06/giving-brass-that-aged-look.html

Note: See if your item is truly brass or only brass COATED. Brass coated items may be stripped down to the base metal by some of these processes.

You can take brass all the way down to BLACK, if you so…

Get Used to Disappointment

Posted on June 6, 2014 at 7:30am 11 Comments

This blog post is part self-motivational speech. If I am honest about myself, I know that I love to learn new things and understand things fully but actually finishing a project is not my strong suit. Sometimes I like to see all the lights turn green before I leave my driveway. It's really dumb when you put it into words like that.

Sometimes the pursuit of knowledge comes at the expense of actually putting that knowledge to work and learning about the how the theoretical…

A little about me...

Posted on June 5, 2014 at 1:34pm 2 Comments

Somehow this wonderful rabbet hole escaped me until recently, but I'm disappearing down it fast. I don't even play (yet) but I'm very interested to learn 12 bar blues slide on a three string of my own making (in the planning and parts accumulation stage now).

My personality type is 1/2 artist & 1/2 scientist, so you can imagine how Cigar Box Guitars tickles my fancy in so many ways...

I see a guitar as I see a wonderful meal. The better the quality of the ingredients, the…

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

Thanks for the compliments on my work Darren.  Regarding my bridge assembly:  The bridge plates I make from 1 1/2 inch aluminum L-stock.  The saddles are just plain old run-of-the-mill.  Wayne.
