Ever since I saw the Cigar Box Guitar in the back of my Bear book, when I was young, I always wanted to build a cigar box guitar. Recently I have come across some really good plans for them. Like anything else out there, people really get into it. I thought about doing this as a den meeting, but could never find enough cigar boxes. I suppose I never really tried hard enough. A few days ago I bought a quality wooden cigar box for five dollars. I’m hoping to pick up the wood for the neck at home depot today. This portion of my ticket is taking on a life of its own. I’ll post pictures here when I finally put my instrument together. I wanted to share a few of the resources I’ve come across on DIY instruments. Enjoy.
my skiffle skills so far include playing musical saw and washboard. hoping tonight a washtub bass will be added to that repertoire after me and the boys in Remsen Social Club build one!! I can only hope my efforts sound half this good.
