I just made my first Cigar Box Guitar, first I used a stem from an existing Sanxian, added biscuit box, then, I enlarged the stem in width and made a 6 string guitar once I found out how to make the pegs.  So here we are!  Thank you for the wonderful exciting site on Cigar Box Guitar.  Now, I will learn to play my guitars.  :)  Will add piezo amplifier later.  
Here is the link to my CBG http://swannbb.blogspot.tw/2014/08/swannjies-new-work-3-string-sanx...
