What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here (at least one sentence long), your membership may be rejected as a spam/bot fake account).
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
