Three years ago I bought the Blues Box Guitar. I wasn't familiar with cigar box guitars and since then I built numerous guitars. Shane, you've always been my go to for tips. I was very disappointed to hear you rip on this guitar. I've heard you say in the past that there are no rules when it comes to cigar box guitars. Every instrument is valid. If a kid picks up this guitar and it leads to a love of music it did it's job. Don't be an elitist. It doesn't look good on you.
