Cigar Box Guitar Answered

Hello everybody. I'm suprised that no one has posted this up yet. I am currently building one. If you google it then you will see that even the great Jimi Hendrix played one. they sound awesome I'll make a vid and instructable so be ready!


Cool. I made one for my sister (a school project) about 10 years ago. It was a 4 string tenor-style thing with twin sound-holes. I used inset match-sticks as frets. It was playable, but I think next time I'll go for a banjo-type thing. At least she got an A on the project.

Cool. I've been looking at cigar box guitars from Daddy Mojo but I'm thinking I'd rather build my own. Don't forget to post a sound bite :) and good luck with it.
