"Very cool! I've got a 1960s Sears Silvertone parlor guitar that I can't play worth a damn. Picked it up on eBay for $60 about 16-17 years ago. I need to mix it into practice rotation with the banjo I'm learning. "
"Thanks, Dave! I’ve been playing about 15 months, now, with no previous music experience. I kinda tried guitar lessons in my early 30s, but it never clicked. Somehow, the banjo in my late 40s has.
The strings are nylgut. Aquila brand, maybe.…"
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.
