Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
A link from Wikipedia article on cigar box guitars. I also have seen some references to this site from Cigar Box Nation where I am a more active participant.
What instruments are you building or playing?
Stick dulcimers (strum sticks, strummers, call 'em what you like), ukuleles, canjos, and cigar box guitars (2, 3, 4, and 5 stringers thus far). Most of my instruments tend to be diatonically fretted like mountain dulcimers.
