Yeah it's just an old box  ,a  piece of  hard wood  for the neck  a cheap pick up and some old tuners   it's not quite finished yet but Couldn't wait to try it.

Re: Cigar box guitar

You've done a great job on that. Looks as good as it sounds. Are you going to join Sea Sick Steve's band? Love his music too. Rock on....

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: Cigar box guitar

A little update, I was just watching Jools Holland cos Chas & Dave were on and Dave was playing a cigar box guitar, but with 4 strings not 3 and it sounded more like a uke.

Just thought you'd like to know?

edited to change "his to uke" i detest predictive text

Re: Cigar box guitar

Really enjoyed this, Graham ... it has surprisingly "big" voice for the size of it! Well done!
