My husband has created several fun cigar box guitars. They are made with a real cigar box. He adds a black walnut neck which he shapes and carves himself. The black walnut wood comes from a tree fallen in his parents' backyard.
He uses a wood burning tool I gave him years ago to burn in the markers for a fretless neck. He hand cuts the f holes and hand carves the bridge. Puts it all together and adds three guitar strings and suddenly you have a guitar.
They are made to be played and create wonderful sound.
He has a few for sale in a local music shop. Plus I have finally convinced him, he should add them to our Etsy Shop.
