They were discussed on here a while back Timothy, and it was said they aren't too bad, i think by memory Chicken Bone John built one and did an article or blog on them, what was the price?

$27.99 AUD.... damn tempted to get one if they have any left by payday....

Here the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HdwFpg_01o. This baby comes with a well made 32 page booklet and a CD for a quick start playing blues on a cigar box guitar with a slide.

At the money it can't be beat. Fibreboard box with a printed film finish, but it's got a maple neck and a simple piezo pickup. I know a lot of people love to hate these, claiming that they rob sales from "genuine" cbg builders. Of course it's not "the real deal", but we don't notice any negative effect on our sales of "real" cigar box guitars. A while ago someone bought a "Blues Box" from us, then a month later dropped £300 on one of our twin pickup cigar box guitars, so for them it was a good introduction.

great analogy John, no threat to people who make crafted gits,but an intro to newcomers, kids etc, who may buy upscale, or even better, think they can personally improve on the store bought item and add there experience to the knowledge pool

i agree , it lowers the barrier to a first time player not willing to spend a lot of money on something that might just be a fad. once they get bitten by the bug they will want a better instrument..its inbuilt flaws short scale and too high action will see to that.

Looks like I gotta go to Aldi's. : ) 

If you are not happy with this baby bought for $27.99 AUD or $20.85 USD you got a set of three strings, three tuners, two bolts, a harness with piezo and jack, a glass slide, a well made booklet and a CD, so what...

Could also put it together with a better box. 

Well I went to my local Aldi's. Not there. Maybe Santa will stock them in our town next year. : )

Sold out in 0ne day at my local

Totally cool Darryl. The more people getting into these awesome guitars the better!
