Keith, I am not working on this project yet.  I have been collecting cigar boxes and I have a nice supply of exotic woods.  I ordered a copy of Cigar Box Guitars and it has not arrived yet.  I have been doing quite a bit of reading and doing some thinking on the project.  I want to build one for myself and then build for the servicemen.   Thanks. Larry

Ken, I live in Sierra Vista and am just getting started in CBG's.  I do not own one, but am going to start building one or more.  If you are in S.V. give me a call at 317-650-6315 (Indiana Cell phone).  Thanks. Larry
