I recently finished this cigar box guitar for my son. The box I got from a local cigar shop, the neck is made of oak with a bit of maple on the headstock. and was mostly shaped with a spokeshave. The fretboard is maple and the fret markers are oak inlay. The tuners are from an old Fender squire, the frets are from Stewart Macdonald. The pickup I got from cbgitty ( i made the surround from some poplar) and the chicken head knobs I found on ebay.
I put together a video of the build process (mostly stills) but if you want to hear it play you can skip ahead to about 3:10
