My Home -Made instrument.
For my BTW new works project I decided to create a cigar box guitar. Unfortunately I do not have it with me at the moment, but I'm sure I'll get pictures and, hopefully, audio soon. Right now I'm more focused on telling you the step by step process of how it was made. Step 1: actually getting a wooden cigar box. My father and I bought a nicely finished cigar box for maybe twelve dollars. The real problem was getting a suitable set of hardware ( neck, tuner, etc.) We finally settled for an old beat up guitar in a flea market. From there we began drilling and sawing , that eventually made the ghetto-fabulous master piece that you will later see.
