Jumpin in on my first build

Greg here from OhioGot inspired to make CBGs while in Nashville.I intend to make a couple different styles but I’d really like when I’m good enough to make some memorial instruments for some family.Got my 3 string CBG kit from CBGitty for my 1st build.I’m kinda cheating as I bought a neck instead of starting from scratch. All it’s saving me though is the head stock as it has a scarf joint. Which I assume the bolt nut goes on the flat part just below the joint?The box is more rectangle at 10…See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I like the uniqueness and simplicity of them.
I like the sound as well.
I like that they can be built and played as simple or as complex as you wish.
I was in Nashville for my cousins funeral and that's when I got the inspiration. I hope at some point to make some CBGs with him and his brothers picture (who is also passed) to give to family members.
