Brian, I looked through your photos for an example where you used molding for a fretboard, but couldn’t find one. I did note the use of toothpick frets, good on you! Doug

Thank you Brian. I just picked up a few cigar boxes in the Beale St. Blues district in Memphis TN. They weren't aware of any cigarbox guitar festivals in or around Beale St. Do you know of any in the Memphis, TN area?

I had some extra material on my  neck, I was going to cut it off, but thought I could do something ornate with it, I'm going  to make a peg wall hanger for It, and try a strap with it also. Thanks for taking an interest in it. Its my first fretted instrument, I learned a lot along the way,
