It's amazing where your art may take you.
I never played a musical instrument but somehow this medium has inspired me to learn. I built my first acoustic Cigar Box Guitar (CBG) and then built my first Electric (CBG) I was fortunate enough to have my guitar playing (band member) brother in law try them out. Remarkably the both proved to be excellent musical instruments. Since then I have built additional CBG's and even some Ukuleles, all of which have scored high points for good looks and playability.
I cant think of anything more satisfying then having my art used by musiacl artists.
All my CBG's are made with real cigar boxes and premium hardwoods and hardware.
