Unbelievable! A song for our first responders!

"Thanks! I'm working on some more covers, and to me, if folks want to hear the exact recording, buy the song. My intent is to stretch some boundaries and re-imagine the tune.  "

This tune is from the British EMF band with my words. This is for our people on the front lines!

"Got a lot of good going on. Nice guitar and bass and good vocals. The drums are faint in the blend. But it still sounds good!"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here (at least one sentence long), your membership may be rejected as a spam/bot fake account).
A custom guitar lets you create your own sound. This fruit box guitar has better sustain than my other guitars too. It was easier to build this one from scratch than to retrofit and old electric to baritone.

I have now built 2 stereo baritone guitars. One, this cbg, and the other is a modified Fender baritone electric. The CBG was way easier to build since I could create the room I needed for the wiring, plug, pots etc. 

Each pickup has 5 wires. The guitars are split down the middle, soundwise. Strings 1-3 go to a guitar amp, strings 4-6 go to a bass amp. Each side needed to be boosted with a Fulltone pedal due to low pickup output, even when the volume controls were floored.

Free CBG advice: start with a hardwood box. The redwood fruit box I used was fragile, so I added hardwood structure inside. But I also drilled out the neck-through plank of oak to lighten up the axe. 

To me, bigger boxes look better, Mine is 11"x16.
