La Aroma de Cuba #242 Cigar Box Guitar
Maple neck/cherry heel, Seven Fiddy Screamin' pickup, walnut headstock wings, green Gibson Deluxe tuners, black 3 string adjustable bridge, black strap buttons, black box corners, onyx nut, cherry fret dot markers, 25" fretted scale. Tuned GDG.
This is the first guitar I've built in almost 3 years and my first CBG built in the new Decatur shop since the move up here. It felt good to build again and I've got 5 more guitars in the shop that I'm working on and many more in mind for future builds.
I owe a certain person a lot of credit for getting me into a creative mindset, to start building again and to realize I can still build a pretty good guitar if I just have fun doing it....you know who you are and I can't Thank You enough!

Thanks UJ, Brian and Doug! 

Never heard of Kluson John?

Nice touch!

Those look like Kluson tuners on a Gibson. I have a set, but so far have not used them.
