New to CBG's

Hey. New guy here. Been into guitars for decades, but new to the cigar box thing. Started buying parts and pieces of a certain 80's brand guitar and assembling them, or 'refurbishing' them. Stumbled upon a cigar box guitar video last week, and was instantly intrigued. I immediately set out to and build my own. Never played slide before, and am learning. Fortunately, as far as sound goes, (in my playing), thuds have quickly turned to pings, and almost discernible notes.Here is my first build. It…See More
