"I like the shapes of the sound holes. Something that you might do, (if you're so inclined) is take a wire mesh or screen, and place that inside the box to give the holes some definition. This will hide any distraction from internal materials.…"

Six guitars with a backlog of projects jammed in the pipeline.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love the banjo and I want one but I can't afford one so I was thinking of building one. My research into building one has inspired me and stumbling onto your site with the pot banjos -they're awesome! I have a lot of free time on my hands and no money, so I'm looking forward to scrounging up the necessary parts. :)
