What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I’m trying to expand the playability of the three string guitar on my Apprehension Machine. My machine has a three string guitar built into it with no specific tuning or fretting so although it makes sounds you can’t strum or pluck out a song.
