What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I needed a hobby to create something. When I came across cigar box guitars, I decided to build one for my wife for Christmas. It came out good, and after doing 5 more (3 diddly bows, 2 3-string one of which is a bed-pan guitar), my hope is to show up at the 2017 PA CBG Fest with my own tent and product.
