Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
I was given a book called Cigar Box Guitars by David Sutton, as a Christmas present from my son and was surfing the internet in search of CBG information and tutorials on building and came upon your site.
What instruments are you building or playing?
I have built a three string CBG tuned to D-A-d and a CB Uke tuners to G-C-E-A.
My next build is going to be a four string probably tuned to open G. It is still in the planning stage. I have the box, tuners, strings and sound holes but am still looking for good neck and fretboard timber.
