Howdy Folks!

How I got Started:
One day I got a package in the mail from my dad.
...

...and the rest was history! When I opened up the package, there was this Pardron cigar box with a 1x2 stick coming out of it with 3 guitar strings streched over 2 bolts and 3 gibson tuning keys fixed to the top end. Well as soon as I figured out what it was, I couldn't put it down! I played and played on it ( I didn't know much slide at the time but the action was so high I figured that's about all I could do with it. ) Long story short, I got to looking at it and thought to myself: "Man, I bet I can build one these suckers" or at least it was worth a try! 

...andl the rest was history! 
( at least in my little world ;-) )

Yes Eric I did make the tail pieces from stainless sheet.On some of my older builds I have been known to cannibalise the wife's kitchen utensils

Thanks for the invitation, Eric!

Nice builds,I like the old box and guitar back one..I did a guitar with a front from an old dexian shelf that sounded kinda cool.

Welcome Eric to my short, but growing, list of friends on the Nation. I tell  all my friends, I love to trade.....boxes, parts, ideas and stories. If you ever find yourself looking for a specific box, give me a shout and if I have it, its yours. I even sent a guitar to Jim Morris for a few months so he could test it for me ( he did a video).

Again, welcome.

Thanks for your comments Eric.

Regarding your question on strings through the box,this one is from 2009,it has a brass plate front and back to stop the strings tearing the timber

Something else we did this year was to invite other artist, painters, sculpters and such to display their work at our fest to give another dimension to the fest. After all we're all artist of some kind or another.

It's a whole lot of fun. If you do run with it , would be happy to answer any questions to help you get things going.

Having a resturant for a host and using their property took care of those sort of things for us since the resturant already had all that in place. If you decide to do this just ask the owner how that would work, they will probably know all that already. We tell all vendors that sales tax is their responsibilty to collect and report if they feel it applies, the fest is not responsible for that. You can check out our website, www.stlouiscigarboxguitarfestival.com to see some pics and I think a video.
