Well I get most of my boxes for free from a local cigar club. I had agreed to build them a CBG to hang on their wall and to play around with and they will give me empty cigar boxes! Real nice people there!
So I started with a Arturo Fuente Cigar Box
and I'm almost finished with it now. All that is left is to drill 9 tiny holes (my drill broke last night), finish mount the tuners (I am useing WD tuners with chrome covers), string it, tune it, play it a lil bit, and finally deliver it! I will post finished pics of it asap!!
I could kick myself in the butt!! Yesturday I was messing around with the cbg and used scotch tape to tape a piezo rod to my brass bridge, plugged it into a Fender Frontman Amp (did not look at the controls....the volume was cranked) I got a lil buzz noise so I jiggled the jack (since it was just laying on top the box) and gave it a strum....I should have kept this one for myself and made it electric!!! This thing SCREAMED!!!! Unbelievably LOUD!!!! LOL,,,, Definately gonna get another one of these boxes and build an electric out of it!!!!
