"Welcome to the Nation Eric. Lots of good folks here and some great craziness to enjoy. CBGs are more fun than a sack full of squirrels at an acorn party. Enjoy your builds, there will be more than one as once you start, it's hard to quit."

How many instruments have you built so far?
None yet. Just came across this site a day or two ago
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I think what I find most interesting is the phenomenal sound produced by even the simplest of designs and materials used. I'm a retired graphic designer and enjoy anything creative and as an avid bagpiper and occasional guitarist, a project and instrument such as this appeals to both my creative and musical nature. Looking forward to attempting a first build and learning to play.
