Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Various researches -- mentions from books, Gitty's site, etc.
How many instruments have you built so far?
None -- so far! But I've only known about CBGs for 2 months
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
