"Great variety in the builds Douglas! I like them. I have been thinking about attaching the necks from the top on my Uncle Crow style builds. I see you have done it here. What are your thoughts?"

"This sure has a good look to it.  The box, the corners, the little sound holes, the bridge and saddle that match so well and almost look like they grew there.   Nice fretboard and markers.   Very nice."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
First off, the absolute satisfaction of creating a musical instrument that has never existed before! Even though there are a multitude of cigar box guitars, or washboards out there, never before was there one exactly like the one I made with my own hands. I LOVE the process! Figuring everything out as I go, embracing my mistakes and ignorance and making some beautiful ugliness come to life is fantastic. Plus... they're just cool as all get-out!
