Introduction: My Home-made Cigar Box Guitar

A friend and I were having a 4 month-long competition on who could make the best home-made instrument, we don't really know who won, but mine is most known around the community (friends, school, etc.) but yeah, check it out. The neck is a piece of curly maple, the cigar box is a cohiba box of ten cigars, imported from the Dominican Republic, store-bought tuners (I'm lame), left over strings, and a piezo for the pick-up. I'll most likly be making another and will be sure to make an instructable on it.

what are the sizes of the box

If I get 4 bass strings and a long enough neck would that be a cigar bass?

you should be able to, its the same principle for a regular guitar vs a bass, there almost the same exccept bass has longer strings

Would someone clue me in as to where to find a cigar box, please?

Pretty much all places that sell cigars sell the empty boxes, too. They usually just cost a dollar or two.
