#1 resource for Cigar Box Guitars, Free Plans, How-To, Parts & More!
Cigar Box Nation is sponsored by C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, your one-stop-shop for Cigar Box Guitar parts and accessories!
This is the group for Lo-Watt Rock & Blues.
Here is the place to post photos and information on how to convert vintage electronics into awesome sounding and really cool guitar amps.
I am not an expert at amps or electronics, I have dabbled off and on over the years and lately really finding my interest growing in the subject and have decided to put this group together for the more experienced people to join and teach us all...also a place to organize the info found on this site.

Here is an example of the great tone that can be found in a old radio.
there are several directions you can go in this area of amplification, you can hack and convert the existing electronics,(provided the radio still works) or you can convert new cigar box guitar amp kits that are for sale and just use the nifty 50's radio bodies for that awesome retro look and feel....They will match your cigar box guitar and really are a joy to play!
also Amp kits are a great way for the novice to join!
anyone can do it, give it a try, you'll never play name brand again!
