What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The creativity of each box. Initially I thought I would just be using my woodworking and guitar repair skills and just be making the same thing over again, but that isn't the case. It is great to have to plan and decide what kind of look I want the guitar to have. And, they are too much fun to play!!!!
