This is my Cigar Box Guitar Build #42.

It is a Christmas Present to my Son this year (I'm only posting here because he doesn't come to this web site). Anyhow, he retired from the Army about a year and a half ago. When we visited him in June he was replacing his license plate so I grabbed it and told him I would turn it into a Cigar Box Guitar -- and I finally did.

He did plenty then!

He did one tour to Afghanistan a few years ago and came back and got into full time recruiting. His last job was a First Sergeant for a recruiting battalion in Alanta GA area.

Great present. Good on your son and I bet you feel some relief having him be a civilian.
