Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Went to my local discount cigarette outlet to look at buying "a couple" cigar boxes to build with.  When I discovered they were only $1 a piece and it was "buy 3 get 2 free"...Let's just say that plan went out the window. LOL!  Here's what I got:


These three are actually METAL!  I've never seen metal cigar boxes before, so I definitely had to grab them.  They are rather thin (depth-wise), so I will probably have to screw them to whatever I use for a neck instead of running the neck through the box.  Wonder if I can make a "cookie tin banjo" out of them? :)


I liked how well the Red Punch box worked, so i snatched up these two Black Punch boxes.  One on the left is a "standard" size and the right one is more "blocky".  Probably good for a diddly bo.


I like the Monte Cristo logo, so I grabbed these two...


The two Arturo Fuente boxes looked to be a little more wood than the others.  The one in the middle just looked cool to me, so I grabbed it.  So there we go...10 boxes for $8.  Not bad, if I do say so.  :)


Now, in order to keep my wife from killing me for buying all these boxes gotta do something with them.  If you see one ya like and would consider doing a trade for something, shoot me a message and we'll work something out. ;)

I know! Neither had I.  Can't wait to try and work with one of them.
