My first self-built CBG. Apologies for the poor picture quality.
It's a simple 3 string with 22.5 inch scale length using a piece of Oak for the neck.
Tuners donated by a friend who'd recovered them from a trashed electric guitar. Internally there are a couple of piezzo transducers wired in series.

I'm enormously proud of this simple CBG build which wouldn't have happened without the inspiration, information and motivation provided by the CB Nation.
I hope to add a little video of the box in action some time soon.

Thanks for the great info, tips and guidance and here's wishing all members of Cigar Box Nation an absolutely fabulous 2010.

I know what you mean. Everywhere I go I'm looking for boxes, timber and junk that I might use in a future build.
Great fun!
Cheers Sam.

Very nice.
Thanks Dianne -
I've had to make some modifications to overcome some buzzing since taking these pics.
Hopefully I'll get a little video recorded of this box in action some time soon.

Thanks for looking :)

Very, VERY nice, true to materials used, straight and to the point (lol)...now, with those piezos installed, it's time (as the MC5 would say) to KICK OUT THE JAMS!!! :-)
Brilliant!

Looks like a great first CBG. Love the background for the photo too!
Thanks Bluesheart - I learned a lot from this simple first build.
In the background are the doors to our garden shed - decorated by my talented girlfriend.
Glad you like them and thanks for your comment.
