This is my 1st cigar box guitar. The box is an Aturo Fuente.
The neck was made from a 3 foot piece of 1”x4” poplar from the home center. I ripped it in two, glued the faces together and sized it down to 1 1/2” x 1 1/2”. I then shaped the neck free hand with a drawknife, rasp and files.
The fretboard was made from a piece of walnut I had on hand.
It has an internal piezo pickup from Radio Shack. The scale length is 24.5”; the guitar is about 33” long.
I have a sample of the sound at my web site: Cigar Box Guitar #001 sound sample
