"Funniest title I’ve seen in a while Steve!  Considering thin hotel walls, I’ve played guitar in many a Motel 6, you did a fine job. Nice tone and very nice playing."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
