Just a little about my cigar box builds, I started by using cigar boxes for amplifiers powered by a 9 volt battery. I wanted to build a cbg but had no idea how to start, I was lucky to find Morticia at gittyman.com with his help and book on building a cigar box guitar. Gittyman took the guess work out of the steps needed to build a cbg that would play music your first time out,I followed his book to build my first cbg that took a weekend to complete. After the first one it was like an addiction to continue and make each one different and use more unusual parts to build with. I have moved from my old workshop which is a 14 aljo trailer to a a 8 by20 foot van body, this year I have sold 15 amps 4 cbg and 2 cgu building the cigarbox ukuleles were a little harder but fun. I play the ukulele and trying to learn to play the cbg.my goal is to use all found item and junk drawer parts for my builds. As soon as I learn how to,post pictures I will.


Aloha,

Uncle joe.
