Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn where to send it.
Thanks, I found it. I think I found that before just didn't know that was it. Thanks again. I pit my cd on my page give it a listen let me know what you think. The players were from Nashville the vocals are me. See ya.
Thanks for the fret info.I have been looking every where to find something and I fount stuff that to me seemed a little expensive. I am not musically inclined but I want to learn. I can't wait to get mine done.
I checked out your page. You are a prolific and skilled builder. I like your builds. Pretty headstocks, lots of detail, nice color. I particularly like the wood top Punch, the black trio and the Hardware Store Special.
Looks like you are a Bulldog fan. I am an Iowa State and Nebraska fan. What music do you play? I am into older blues, Gospel and some old timey.
hello howdy brother robert,thanks for the comment man,and the truth is those lap steel builds were very easy to build and didn't take long to do at all.i encourage you to try one cause i know you will have a good time building one and you have great vision on your builds,so thanks for the comment brother man. the 4 string is simple-i used an old spirit level,an old tobacco tin,and fer da peg box i used the blocks that are inside cigar boxes--i cut one of them in half for the sides of the peg box and cut another to make the front and back of the peg box and screwed the 4 pieces down on the level and presto it was a peg box.i drilled the tuner holes after the peg box was attached to the level. take care man,talk wit ya later.
Hey thanks for the help on the brass pickup inserts they really look nice. I did buy about 5 of the Dollar Tree buzzers as I had to go to 3 different Radio Shacks to get the Piezos they had listed on website on how to solder them together, It was easy and no feedback at all unless I am cranking it, I used hot glue to cover mine and it works great. Again thanks for the insight.
