My first attempt at a more shapely instrument neck. Fretless, 25” scale, the wood burned ivy pattern roughly indicates the fret positions.

Cigar Box Ukes 1 & 2

I made a second cigar box uke, same style, but slightly more modern in looks. It also sounds better. Having a little issue with a couple of tuning pegs staying put, but new ones are on order.

Tenor cigar box uke

"Thank you! It's been a pretty nice playing instrument. Much better tone than previous builds. Not sure what I got right, but I'm happy with it. Action is still a little high, but I've got a set of nut files coming in the mail to fix…"

How many instruments have you built so far?
Less than a handful, more than a few.
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 folk art of them. The sound is neat, but I like the art and personality many builders infuse into their work. You can build a simple paper box build or go completely nuts with hardware and creativity.
