Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn where to send it.
Thanx very much for the invite Fernando...I'm pretty partial to those tele type pine bodied builds...as well as hardwood variations...theres something about the simplicity of telecasters and the differant electronic mods and combinations...
Thanks Fernando, for the comments about my lap steel. They mean something coming from you. For fun put some Padauk or Cherry on one of your bodies. I do think wood matters. For beauty if nothing else. ... Dave
