Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD, books--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at kevinmkraft@juno.com  to learn where to send it.

 

Thanks for you time and consideration.

 

- Kevin

Hi David,  This bass is definately cool.  it has 18 frets on it and has a 34" scale.  It was one of my favorite projects.  You can call me at 239-994-1773

David,

 

Just looking over old posts... how did the amp kits from the Canadian company come out?  I'm going to need something light weight to do during my recovery period.  Do you have any suggestions?

 

thanks,

 

Sam
