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?
