Hello to the Cigar Box Nation !!!
My primary instrument is the guitar. I also play drums, keyboards, and bass. I played professionally for 13 years with the same 5 guys. I now have my own project recording studio where I record my own music. The studio name is "Blue Guitar Studios". While playing live music back in the 70's, I learned to play slide guitar for certain classic cover songs. I have continued to love and practice this art form on my Les Pauls and Strats. I also have a strong engineering background with a pretty good understanding of the physics of sound and guitars. I recently caught the bug for CBG's and amps. My hippie Mom handed me a giant bag full of cigar boxes she had been saving for years!!! She is 88 years old !!! She told me that people are making guitars using these boxes and she had been saving them for me. The boxes struck me as pure art. I took one look online and found your websites. I was hooked !!! I am now researching and designing a 6-string electric. After that, my next project will be a high quality 4-string bass version.
Peace and Love to All !!!
