Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Upcoming Book: 'The Cigar Box Guitar Book'. Help Me Write my Book.

Hi, I'm David Sutton and I'm writing a book which is tentatively titled "The Art of the Cigar Box Guitar" for Fox Chapel Publishing. Fox Chapel publishes books about woodworking primarily but they're branching out a bit.
I'm looking for short (1 sentence to two paragraphs?) comments from clubhouse builders on the subject of what building and/or playing cigar box guitars means to you, what has it brought to your life and why you do it?
Be advised that I intend to publish some of these comments, so whatever you write could end up published. If you post here you are implying permission for me to use the quotes.
You may choose to identify yourself by name or by initials, just let me know what your preference would be.
If you have any questions let me know, and if you'd like a couple of solid references talk to Ted Crocker or to Diane in Chicago. Please tell your friends if you think they might have something to say.
Thanks!

Robert-

 

WOW. You clearly go about nothing half-way. I would love to be able to include a couple of photos in my book. Do you have HI RES photos of any of these? That means original files taken with a camera of 5 megapixels or greater. Especially interested in CIGAR BOX based instruments, and any with good stories. My deadline is 2/1/2011.

you can email me: david@suttonstudios.com

"I first took up cigar box guitar building because I wanted to learn to play the guitar.  I go about nothing half way, so I decided to follow in the footsteps of the blues greats I grew up listening to.  After building my first, I became hooked.  I've now built box guitars for the likes of Justin Timberlake and Kevin Head, but still don't know how to play." - Robert Bear
I took them with a canon T2I, but I'm not sure what setting I used.  Let me take a look at what I have.  They weren't intended for print of course.
