My latest build. See it in the flesh at Boxstock next Saturday. Hope to see lots of you there. Greg
And the one before
This is No.55. Got some Sweet tins from Home Bargains . They are just the right size and seem to work well
That is a shitload of value for fourteen quid, looking forward to it.
Boxstock - the UK Cigar Box Guitar Festival.
10th Feb, The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton
During the daytime there's something for everyone...you can learn the finer points of making a cigar box guitar, learn the basics of playing with Hollowbelly, hone your slide technique technique with ChickenboneJohn, play a few tunes in the open mic. sessions..or just mooch round the stalls and have a drink or two. We'll also have BAFTA nominated film director Virginia Heath filming the event. Hollowbelly will be playing live during the afternoon, and I'm very pleased to announce that I will be joined by the amazing harmonica player Dave Smith during my evening spot.

A possible contender is the Retune charity; they attended Bostock last year as a seller:
Boxstock - we will have a film crew at the event, and the film makers are interested in any Scottish cigar box makers. I believe the director is Scots (BAFTA nominated!) and they are partly funded as a Scottish project). If you would be willing to take part, please let me know, together with your contact details.
