Profile Information

How many instruments have you built so far?
About 30
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I was attracted by the idea of making a guitar out of "junk" because I build a lot of other things out of junk, and to have a simple instrument that even I might be able to play. As I have progressed I find it fun and challenging to play with the wood and decorate everything in an artsy fashion. I Love 'em !

Actually mom called me JonBoy a long time before the TV show aired. When I started on the internet in the 90's JonBoy was already taken as a username. I knew a lady from Louisianna with the last name Bouye that was pronounced Boy so I started using it. It works for
