"I've sinned too, then - to wit: The gateway in front, the first home build to the rear. I'm addicted as well, and yes, the BBG sounds better with a real slide, not that plastic junk included. Cheers! Rob"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Cigar Box guitars interest me because I have been a blues music fan for a long time, I play slide on my Olympia Resonator, but I am interested in trying something with a different tone, and maybe fewer moving parts.

Besides, it just looks like a lot of fun, but I don't want to start cutting strings off my other guitars...
