These were made as x-mas presents for my Dad last year. I was too lazy to write up a full instrucable, so I just put together a quick slideshow instead. I used some free cigar boxes, some scrap wood, and a few scavenged electronics parts. My only expenses were the tuners, strings, and fretwire. It was a fun project inspired by a Lightning Hopkins quote about his musical beginnings. It sounds surprisingly good, although probably not as good as it would have sounded in Lightnings hands.
