As of last night, only 3 hours after this campaign went live, we hit our funding goal and the New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival was saved from cancellation.
I am amazed and deeply moved by how quickly and forcibly the CBG community came together to save this fest. Thank you to each and every one of you who have contributed to this effort. >>Read more and donate toward next year's fest
Three string art cigar box guitar by D. B. J. Handrafted Instruments. The more you look at this picture, the more details you notice about its amazing artwork. Note the pinstriping lines that match both the soundholes and the metal corners. There's also the Victorian horn on the lower bout, a perfectly matched top handle and the tree of life spade in the neck. This is magnificent!
Even though the goal was at 130% funded, it was a pleasure to kick a few toward next year's festival fund.
