Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone has any info on building faux cigar boxes (given that real ones are so hard to get and expensive in Oz).

Comment by dogfinger steve on November 9, 2016 at 5:01pm

hey folks, i'm uk based but will be in Oz for 3 weeks from the 15th. staying just south of perth. if there is anything going on there would love to play while i'm there. cheers

Still have quite a few left. Sent one lot to South Australia, postage came to $38. Prices range from $5 to $20. Just want to recover what I spent on them.

Send me an email Glenn to: devilguitarstas@gmail.com

and  may be we can work something out.

I'm in Tassie.

Cheers

Bruce

Postage isn't that high. B-)

Hi Glenn, I've never built with a real cigar box, pity l don't live in Melbourne. Taff
Comment by Glenn Reither on October 19, 2015 at 11:45pm

And some more. (see my earlier Comment) The book-look boxes make great gats. Bill Bailey has two of mine built on those and they rock. Some good wooden Cohiba etc. A clock that really needs to be a guitar. A choc chip cookie tin. A cone out of a resonator uke.

Hey Melbourne people! I have a stack of great boxes for sale. Too busy to build these days and someone should get the use of them. Just need to recover what I spent.

I was a member of the Aussie CBG site as well but it looks like the owner didnt pay for the web hosting service and it has been closed. Tis a real pity because there was some great info and pics and videos on their.

I've recently moved back to Sydney from a few years overseas. When I left Australia there was an Aussie CBG site, I think run my Paul Thorley, which I was a member of. I can't seem to find it anymore - does it still exist, and if so what is it called?
