I have been making these amazing instruments for several years now, and have sold nearly 300 , www,cigarboxguitar.net.au
This is a 4 String Fretted model, my most popular.
The box is a genuine Romeo y Julietta cigar box.
the sound hole cover is from an egglifter, and the tailpiece is from a pasta serving clamp.
The neck is recycled from a piece of Jarrah decking, and the fretboard is furniture grade recycled Australian Ash
Tuners are sealed, strings are Guitar 11/52. The nut is a piece of a steel bolt.
The bridge is a piece of repurposed motorcycle wheel spoke, and it covers a traditional ceramic rod pickup.
It sounds really good acoustically, and when you plug it into an amplifier, it has that deep Delta Blues sound.

    Fantastic! I bought this a gift and it was very well received. I would highly recommend to anyone who plays guitar as it's just as much fun putting it together as it is playing it.
