"That looks great and I am interested in how you did the pickup.  I use that wood for under the pickup, for a base.  Good idea to do it as you did. "

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Google
How many instruments have you built so far?
I purchased one on eBay. I've built only one with more in the works.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I cant believe the sound these guitars make with such simple parts, and also easy to play. I scrounged up a cigar box,the hardware and strings from around the house. I bought a 1x2 and built the "Uncle Crow" in about an hour and then I was strummin away.
