What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Honestly...they've given me life again. It's hard to explain, but I hit a real low point in life. I was really down...but I rediscovered the blues, and soon after, "roots-music", and from that Cigar Box Guitars. I just found something real...and my life, needed some real stuff in it again. This stuff really means a lot to me. I don't know where I would be with out it.

Howdy, folks! 

I have some interesting news. After chatting with the fine folks who run local annual Comic Book Convention, I've decided to go ahead and rent a table/booth selling my CBG's, handmade old-school instruments, and other blues related stuff. The surroundings might be unusual, but the folks who run it are really wanting me to bring my stuff...and something different...to their show.
