Hi, I'm a new member here from Hamiton.

Am looking at building my first cigarbox guitar and was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to find them around Hamilton? I have been looking on trademe, but I would prefer to actually see the box to get and idea of size and stuff before buying it.

Any help would be wicked

Cheers

Luke

Short answer: there is none

In Auckland: Havana house is about $15 a box

Trade me otherwise but it's few and far between and expensive

CB Gitty will ship to nz but freight is high as, however no stop smoking stuff to remove, and bigger size boxes than you see here.

There is a tobacconist out towards the base I've yet to check out as well

Hope that helps

Cliff
