do we know who made that one?

 

Way cool to see somebody that big promoting a CBG!!!
Hoyo de Monterrey de Jose Gener - that's the same as my current fav CBG, but his looks bigger.
supachicken is the guy that makes Sea Sick Steves guitars - seems like hes doin good :)
Thanks for posting this!

THATS A BUNCH OF 6 STRING STUFF CRAMMED INA BOX PAINTED BY A 5 YEAR OLD ON CRACK. THATS NOT AN AUTHENTIC CBG.......  WHAT PAUL SIMON KNOWS ABOUT BLUES COULDNT FILL HALF OF THE ANTIQUE GLASS BOTTLE I USE AS A SLIDE......

On a related note Garfunkle couldnt be there that day for the video shoot...He was too busy having a custom Diddly Bow made by some boutique designer.......

No offense to the Guy who builds for Seasick ( if thats who built this one) I now money is money but....whats next? The Peter Paul and Mary line of CBGs........

It was built by Super Chikan, who is as authentic as they come, both as a player and a builder.  He's from the Mississippi Delta, the nephew of Big Jack Johnson, and also a national blues touring artist in his own right.  He also makes gas can guitars. http://www.superchikan.com/

Any kind of music can be played on a cigar box guitar, not just blues. I doubt if the Civil War era originators of the cigar box guitar were playing blues, because guess what - blues had not been invented yet!

Paul Simon is a national treasure.

You tellim Skeesix!,  Heeee Haaaw!
If you're a music lover you can't discount Paul Simon's body of work not the creative force that drives him.
