I built this little thing for fun. It’s a companion to my Pink Panther dulcimer. Red oak neck with carved headstock. Rocky Patel cigar box. 22 jumbo frets. Twin stacked 20mm piezo disc pickup. Bone nut & bridge. Paw print soundholes. Low fast action. It plays as good as it looks.

Almost sounds overbuilt for a cigar box guitar, but as long as you enjoy it and it makes good music, what more
can you ask for. Thank you for sharing, and do I hear that Pink Panther overture in the background?
