Hello Dan, James here. Sounds like you have the will to try something and i feel sure you will do fine. Welcome.

Comment by Dan Mullen on March 6, 2014 at 4:02am

Hello ever one I'm Dan.  I have recently started on my 1st (well... 1st five) cigar box guitars.  I have no idea how to play so this should be quiet the learning experience.  I made some Kalimba's for my daughters and wife for Christmas and they turned out great, so maybe with a bit more effort these will also.

G'day from Australia! My name is Ian Cunningham and I've been making cigar box guitars, basses and ukeleles for several years.I've been fortunate enough to be able to have a permanent display in a local art gallery, where I've sold a few. Mostly, I sell by word of mouth and often make to order. It's a great hobby! I also play bass in a local retro rock'n'roll band...can't keep a good man down!

Hi my name is Ben,

I first got into building CBGs out of curiosity and 6 months later I was invited by a friend of mine to help out with my own brand of production for the Harley Davidson 110th anniversary event with a part in a booth in "Artisan Alley" at the Harley Museum. We built 12 guitars in 3 months and sold 7 (of ours) in 2 days. I'm not bragging, I just think it was a really cool opportunity that made for some even cooler stories :) Thanks for your time, and I hope to enjoy my time here with all of you and learn as much as I can from the collective genius here :)

Hey Pinhead any videos?

Comment by Pinhead on October 11, 2013 at 9:45am

Oops... well I guess you all got my message... haha.

Comment by Joseph Bento on October 7, 2013 at 10:53am

Hello, my name is Joe

I'm trying to post this message again, as yesterday I was having issues with word wrap as well as making the mistake of sending my initial post to all members. (Sorry)

I play 6-string acoustic and electric, albeit poorly, primarily due to my lack of discipline and practice habits.  I've recently developed an interest in CBG's since I like to make things. 

I'm an electronics technician by trade, and enjoy old vacuum tube gear as a hobby.  I've posted a couple photos of bread tin tube amps I have built.

I'm looking forward to learning from the wealth of experience that is present in on this website.
