Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Dirty Scrapyard GGB

This 3 string and accompanying case were made out of sheet metal from the outside of an old dishwasher. Tuners (found as a pack of 6 on a car boot sale) are cased in a little Dutch "Panter" metal cigar box. The sides of the guitar were "upholstered" with strips of old leather pants and for the case, I used old corduroy trousers. The neck was made out of an old window frame, the fretboard still has the influences of the weather on it (only a layer of wax) The hinges on the case were made from reflective canvas band and "sawtooth" picture frame hangers. As well as the base for the case, the semi-hollow body was made out of leftover pine scraps. It's tuned in GGB...
