Testing latest cigar box guitar. The box is old and big and I made it a 6-stringer. First I play acoustic, then Vox night train -tube amp bright chanel and 3. crunchy. I use finger picks. The strings are heavy 012-set, could be softer. Pine fretboard has a bit dull sound, I admit.

Some mighty fine blues riffs.  Well played sir!

Cheers UJ and Andries. I usually build wide necks to have good space for left hand fingers. Maybe Im over cautious for neck warping, too. This one has even a trussrod.

Fine Build Eero still sounds pretty good for a 012 set ,verry wide neck ,was you planning for more strings ? fine playing aswell thanks for the look& Listning! Greeettsz A.D.

Man, you have some nice old blues chops cooking threre.  Very nice playing.  Good sound from the big box and good job on the six string neck.
