"And it appears that we have snared another one. Rev, there is still time to escape, but you are on the edge of entrapment! Soon, the slavish obsession to build, play, and improve will have you fully entangled. They got me in 2014, and I have been…"

Reverend Bow replied to Snuffy Smith's discussion The boxes and the sound they produce...
"Wow Nice! The way an instrument sounds on the internet isn't the same as they sound in person. String instruments (CBG/Guitars) tones are largely influenced by the player."

2 Guitars, 6 Tube Amps
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...
