VIDEO: Luther Dickinson Rocks Cigar Box Guitar with North Mississippi Allstars

It's always great to see Luther pickup a cigar box guitar and crank out Mississippi Boll Weevil.  He started out playing Lowebows made by Cigar Box Nation member, John Lowe:

Since then, he's amassed a large stable of cigar box guitars made by other builders.  This particular guitar appears to have a Snake Oil mini humbucker loaded in it.  Here's a closeup:

Anyone have an idea who the builder is?

GREAT slide guitar. Does James have a disc in which he plays mainly cigarbox slide like this? Thanks in advance for the info

That's good stuff right there!

Makes me want to go out and build more... I only have 8 hanging in the garage...

Yup.  I am with RTZ on this one.  I expect (and hope) to see these guys getting more and more fame and recognition.
