Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

I'm very pleased with the look on this build. A friend gave me some old tuners so I was inspired to make a cbg that fit the tuners. I wanted it to look 80 years old. I aged and distressed the wood using shoe polish, stains, sandpaper, and a hammer.

You are right, Merle... They are tarnished a bit though... the camera just caught them reflecting... I do need to muddy them up some more though.  Thanks!
