Hi all.To say I'm a novice at this would insult novices the world over. I got hooked on 3-string guitars when I saw Justin Johnson playing a 3-string shovel. That did it for me. I have all the…Continue

I have been wanting to do the Cigar Box Guitar for a couple years now. Well, I pulled the trigger on a "Snake Oil Mini Humbucker" and the "Psycho 5 way switch". I also bought a "ready made" Cigar Box Guitar I plan on modding with the above referenced gear. Looking forward to learning some Delta Blues with one of these.

 I started playing guitar in about 1964 (yep, I'm up there). About 4 years ago I started learning how to fix, mod, and set up Electric 6 string guitars. I am confident now doing this, So I am starting to work on other peoples guitars. So far, so good I have about 30 guitars that I have worked on, under my belt. 

The Cigar Box Guitar will be my next project to learn play and build. Looking forward to joining in with you folks to learn and sharing all this wonderful info around. Thank You all for letting me join in.

Welcome Martin. It's a big family with guitar issues. Habits form. :*)
Comment by Martin Alexander on Thursday

Still learning navigate the CBN site!

As I play my CBG's for folks...I'm always asked two questions.

1) What is THAT???

and 2) Did you build that yourself?

I'm dyin' to answer "YES" to question #2.

Looking forward to learning from all of you!

Based on your Thursday comment here, Dave I think maybe you are a Duluthier!

Nice tale of a CBGer. I'm an addict as well and need a bigger house. However that's not going to happen. Now I "improve" old builds. I'm taking my time and have many good instruments as a result. Welcome to our madness Zeb.
Comment by Zeb on Monday

Zeb, back after a time. Just built a 3 string short scale Candy tin with a bass soap bar. Plays well. All 3 of My previous builds were 4 string. I need some 3 string tab.I have Kenny Lee's cd so that will help. Some amazing talent in here. I will post some pictures when I get set up. New windows 10 is kicking My ass. LOL
