Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Watching Samantha Fish videos
How many instruments have you built so far?
1 plus a half of two others
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
A community plus a do-it-yourself approach is what makes a genre great. I love stonermetal, goofy genre music, underground hard rock, and old timey musics. Building a CBG lets you try out every tool in the toolshed. Plus, any hobby that lets you lust after the next cool new thing to try is an automatic win.

Thanks God bless.
