"I stained the saddle with Minwax true black stain. I've used that on several fretboards too. It really makes the oak grain stand out."

"Yup.  Some great stuff.  Oh, this is a bass.   Every inch is nice, but I like the extended fret board just kind of enhances it."

Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
from cbgitty
How many instruments have you built so far?
working on my first. (update) Lost count, guessing maybe 75 including Amps, Ukulele's, Lap steel, tambourine's, canjo's, acoustic and electric 3, 4 and 6 string cigar box guitars.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm retired and always looking for a fun and interesting project. Being a music lover (but not a musician) I made a deal with my grandson, who does play guitar, that I would build my first CBG for him and he would teach me some basics after I build my second one for myself.
