here is my first cigar box guitar, or CBG as they are commonly called. it uses a cool drew estates undercrown box, maple neck with 4d finishing nails for frets. some cheap ping tuners and it has a piezo rod pickup under the bridge to make it electric.
it sounds pretty good and i have learned quite a bit by building it, the biggest thing is next time im using real fret wire instead of nails. the nails came out ok but they were a lot of work!
i have already started my second guitar and have plans for many more, these things are adictive!
