Welcome Craig and Franklin. Welcome to the addiction and recognizing you have a problem. Rehab from this type of addiction is frowned upon.

Hi everyone, I'm Franklin McQuaid and just joined Cigar Box Nation. I just received my first Cigar Box Guitar off of eBay. I look forward to learning to play it. I also am learning the blues harmonica. I play some six string guitar. It's a goal of mine to become a one man band. I have lots to learn and welcome any positive feedback. I would like to hear from you. I am excited and look forward to this new venture. I plan to provide videos and picture in the future.

Good morning everyone! My name is Stephen and I stumbled upon 3 string CBG's just a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love them. I was immediately intrigued with the history and deep culture that comes with them. I've never played a guitar before but and very excited to learn and play my very first CBG creation. I see a lot more builds in my near future for sure.

Comment by Rock-Schorsch on May 1, 2017 at 4:02pm

Hello ! My name is Schorsch (in Bavaria for George), and I come from Olching 20 kilometers west of Munich. Since I built a gitty last year, I still needed some playable songs. Then came across other sites some time ago on this site with some tabs and accessories. The parts were but then with customs clearance and shipping too expensive and I left it. By the construction of a transistor amp and a tube amp, as well as a CBG suitcase, I wanted to join this community to return some of the creativity.  I've been playing guitar for about 35 years, but I've got a passable Tele-Copy, and an Ovation Legend, but I prefer to play on an old, worn-out Framus Western, which cost around 50 € about 30 years ago Has. Pieces from j.j. Cale or Skynyrd. On the four-string are simple blues songs. The conversion is tremendous for me as a rhythm guitar player. I am now looking forward to sharing some pictures, tips and videos. We are looking forward to a lively exchange: Schorsch Thank you!!!
