Cigar Box Guitars are a real passion for me. It’s actually my main woodworking area. If you don’t know CBG’s are primitive instruments build mainly with found objects and usually have 3 or 4 strings. It’s what alot of poor folks in the south played tunes on. Many blues players started with these instruments.
On this particular build, I used a pet dish as a resonator. I built a pinebox to house it and used poplar for the neck and headstock.
The top of the box is some scrap luan from the carpentry department at the high school where I teach.(visual art..not carpentry ha!)
The soundhole covers are sink drain screens!
