After attending the York pa cigar box guitar fest, I had the desire to try my hand at building a guitar, even though I have never played guitar before.
My friends and family thought I was crazy, but the first build is down, several more are planned.
I went with a punch box three string, currently fretless, but i plan to fret it, with twin piezo pic-ups.
Also anyone with tips, videos would be most helpful on how to play this would be great!
Great first build!
Welcome to the addiction... errrr... ummmm... I mean obsession... oh wait... ummmm...
your friends and family are right. get out while (if) you still can.
great stuff :)
It's not really an addiction, you can stop any time you want. I've built one Cookie Tin, three Cigar Boxes and four canjos, have another three Cookie Tins, four Cigar boxes and sticks and cans coming out of every where, but I can quit. Really, I can, but I'm just having too much fun.
Very nice build. You can't go wrong with the blue punch boxes.
