Slightly more dramatic shot of my new six string cigar box guitar. I'll be taking this beauty to a sci fi convention called AggieCon 46 this March 26-29 in College Station, TX. I'll also be uploading it to my Etsy shop so, maybe, it'll sell before the con and I'll have to build a new one. Oh, horrors! (where's my fainting couch?)

Awesome! I love the faux body lines. That should make it comfortable to hold on to.

So, does this thing need a "Gig'em" bag??  ;-)   Nice job, Michael!

Michaal - if you don't sell it on Etsy, I'd be happy to put it in my booth at Blues Alley in Navasota.  PM me if you're interested!

Love how you incorporated the guitar shape without losing the cigar box.  Awesome.
