Move over brand new shiny guitar, Here comes my Cigar Box Guitar!!!

Way back when i was younger I always asked for a guitar,but i didn't get it. My dad would always say " Bo Diddley made his guitar with a cigar box and a piece o' wood". And i always looked athim like as if he were crazy. A few years later, I had a friend that wanted to leave his jacked up guitar at my house. The neck was broken away from the body,with only 3 strings and  he had no intentions of comin' back for it. what do I do with a guitar that can't be played? Bo Diddley! Yeah! That's it! I glued and screwed the broken off neck and bridge to a Hava-Tampa cigar box, thus creating my first guitar and cigar box guitar!
Twenty years later, I discovered "cigar box guitars" group strictly by accident, triggering my long lost love for all things cigar box. Isn't it funny how life comes full circle sometimes?

Hey Brian, I'll send a dark Purplish Stevens and a house scene flat slide. Any size preference? I've got big fat Stevens and ones the size of a real Stevens. I like the big ones myself. I'll send one of my bigger flat bars. Some are real big, kind of big and just big. ? do you think? .... Dave
