"I have mastered 4 pole P90 pickups. 42 AWG or even 43 AWG are your typical manufacturer's choice for coil, but I have used 41, 40 and 38 with interesting tone results. 41 AWG is great for dark tones and making bass guitars for some reason.…"

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Youtube
How many instruments have you built so far?
One mostly. Working on a 2nd that's all me.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I play harmonica. When i first pucked one up i knew i would learn it. I decided about a month ago that i was going to learn a stringed instrument but i had no interest in main stream instruments. I borrowed one from family and felt the same way. I know i will learn it.
Having the freedom to use any scrap piece i can or want to is great.
I am starting to carve a spine now. I now am playing slide blues and even cut my own Mikes Hard Lemonade bottle slide.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Stella.
