My first attempt that actually got thru

Hello, my name is Larry " mac " McCormick, I played drums since about 7th grade but after years of driving family and neighbors crazy, I've moved to a little more pleasurable instruments. Though my wife prefers to be gone when I play my diddly bows ! I have been building diddly bows from vintage boat oars and old carpenters levels, as well as 1 cigar box also. I found a place in a little town nearby me here in Bremerton, Washington that had cigar box guitars that were really nicely made. I…See More

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
I just got bought a Ted Crocker vintage diddly bow with a telecaster like body and lipstick tube pickup on ebay for only $ 129.00 I have read about him and have seen his work before. Can't wait to get it soon. I have been making my own diddly bows for awhile now and like them to be weird and unusual. I make them out of old boat oars and vintage carpenter levels, as well as cigar boxes and vintage tins. A lot of fun and love the creativity involved. Still learning though. CB GITTY making a lot off me lately !
What instruments are you building or playing?
Just built a couple of diddly bows and a wash tub bass. I find that I keep improving them and they just get better and better.So much fun !

Hi Mac, welcome to my Handmade Music Clubhouse - Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters (CBG HQ)!

Awesome that you are the proud owner of one of my creations.  I hope you love it as much as I did, that one was a personal keeper.  It was hard to sell, but I had to finance my move to Florida.  Can you send me the link to the eBay auction please?  Is it this one? 

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is...  There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
