I am playing at First Night in Burlington VT tomorrow (Sat) and have publicized that I will be playing a cigar box guitar in addition to my diddly bow and some other stuff on a couple different guitars.  Got here and realized I FORGOT MY CIGAR BOX GUITAR when I left CT this morning.   Anyone live near Burlington who could lend me a 3 string CBG preferably amplified ?   Can do without but will make a better show...   Let me know ASAP and thanks in advance to anyone to can help me.

Well, there’s a missed opportunity, maybe.

Old Crow Mojo Guitars is in Fletcher, VT 30 miles from Burlington.  Maybe you could borrow one from them in exchange for promoting them during your show.


You do realize this thread was 13 years ago, right?

:)))  Thanks, Brian.  No I did not.  Patrick brought it to the top.  Then, I somehow thought Taff's comment was about Patrick's blank post that might have been a offer to help.  So, I spent time looking for a CBG shop nearby.

Oh well....I tried.

Hahaha, got me too, again, old posts. Well he got more answers now than back then.

Well I actually did reply to the original post, and I made a funny joke about being a tad late, like 13 years late. But since I'm new to this forum, I did not click on the HTML tab, so my post ended up blank.

I may be wrong, but I believe Old Crow has retired. His webpage is gone and his facebook page has been inactive for a few years.

And in a shameless fashion, I offer up my own Facebook presence:

Maple State Guitars.
