What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
They are instruments that pretty much anyone can build and enjoy with very little expense and they can produce very unique sounds. I'm amazed at the vast range of creativity in the builds I have seen so far and they look like they will be great fun to play once I learn how.
