Handmade Music Clubhouse

Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

I'm probably going to make a "How To" tutorial out of the building of this instrument.  The first person to guess what it is (precisely) will win a complete set of my "how to's", including

 

"How to build a CBG",

"How to Build a Bolt-on Neck (Fender) Style CBG",

"How to Build a Canjo", 

"How to Play a Canjo" (including a canjo songbook)

 and the most recent "How to Build a ?????????". 

 

I'll probably be throwing this build log up for everybody's use by the weekend.

 

Enjoy.... the best,

 

Wichita Sam

now i no were all my clamps went
ha!!!  we have a new Menard's opening... one of the specials is 4 Irwins clamps (2-6" and 2 micro's) for $ 9.87... They are normally 2 -6's for $21 and 2 micros for $ 18 at Lowes... needless to say I bought some to suppliment my cheapo clamps.  I needed every one I had on this project... So, Gene... what is it?    ;-) the best, Wichita Sam

looks like a double pine or similar frame, so it's a hollow or semi  body, the top might be masonite, which would be danelectro style. Bottom wing is somewhat SG like, cant's see upper bout. I'm going to go with a danelectro style semi hollowbody.
well it looks to me it might be a soild body that might be a six string
very close..... just a detail or two to complete the "precise",, but very very close....  ;-)

6 string.... good, see that neck (partly) in the background?  take a look at Harrison's guess and refine it....

You can never have too many clamps.  Looks like an SG to me with a bolt on neck.  Sam, if you do the How To as a progress blog on your page here, I'll add it to the group Builder's Progress Blogs.  What are the other how tos you mentioned?  Sounds like they should be posted in the appropriate groups.

Ted,

 

The other "How to's" are occasional revenue builders.... I haven't freed them to public domain.... yet.....  This build will definately be posted as a builder's progress blog (with notes)....   It has a really unique twist...  the best,  Sam
