What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
What I find most interesting about cbg guitars is that there is really no limits to what you can do and what materials you can use to build them. Plus they sound great as well as look great.awesome way to reuse or recycle old or new things.And people seem to be willing to help or answer questions in the cbg communities

Yes, I am responsible. The cases you could buy were all too big and too "normal", so I built myself a suitable one. The CBG does not raise any mm back and forth and the whole is not particularly clunky and heavy.
