After finding a site about Cigar Box Guitars, I just had to try it. It’s been a really great project, fun to build and fun to play. Mahogany for the neck, covered tuners, 3/32” brass rod for frets, 1/8” brass rod for fret marker dots and a 1/4” brass bolt for the bridge. Piezo element glued to top in the dead center inside. Really rips through a good amp. An Arturo Fuente ‘Petit Corona” box for the body, real wood! 25” scale. Multiple coats of Danish oil for the neck. Hope to start another one real soon. I’ve got enough mahogany for two-three more necks. This one is made for playing with a slide, very high strings, frets are just for position and looks.
