What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I like cheap technologies, working with recycled materials, giving a "no conventional second life" to old objects.

Ciao Elio, grazie per l'apprezzamento ; per me è cominciato tutto un paio di anni fa quando mi tornò la voglia di suonare la chitarra e per questo ho deciso di restaurare la mia vecchia simil Stratocaster. Da allora la liuteria è diventata un'ossessione ! A proposito del CD di cui mi parlavi, e' possibile ascoltare qualcosa?
