Just wanted to say hi to the cigar box guitar Community

I have been reading a lot of the postest. I had no idea there was  such a variety of homemade instruments. I will be building my one CBG soon and I would like to lean on the  Community for help ideas and encouragement .

Thanks

Richard

Welcome Richard.  Good wishes on your build.  Most of us would suggest you do a fretless build to start and likely a three string or a one string diddley bow.  Check out how to build under resources at page top.  Bolt saddles and nuts are fine and easiest.  Keep about 2 inches from the nut to the nearest tuner if you can.  Keep it simple.  Have fun.  Check out knotlenny's CBG 101 under resources, how to play.

Hello, Richard.

I'm new here too and am overwhelmed by the amount of creativity and thoughtful participation in this community. If ever there were a place one should seek counsel and inspiration to build and play handmade musical instruments, it seems this is it.

I hope your first build goes well for you and is the first of many. 

Best regards.
