Announcement   Hello, this is Wes. I have been enjoying making cigar box guitars for about three years now and have been playing guitar since I was 12 (I am 66). Just strum one and it already sounds like the blues. I am a hobbyist and take care that every guitar I make is tunable, playable and non-warping. My frets are right and my guitars have everything I want in a well made guitar that I would want to own myself. In fact, some of my sold guitars I grudgingly gave up wanting to hold on to them myself for as long as I could. I invest about $50 into every guitar I make and boxing and shipping cost me about $35. My prices are well below what others would charge for a well made instrument. My guitars are made to be played for years. My magnetic 6 string pickups are set at an angle to maximize magnetic interaction between the the pickup and the strings. My frets are right on and set at an exact 25" scale. The acoustics depend on the box used. All my boxes are real cigar boxes and not hobby boxes. A cigar box sound can only come from a real cigar box. My guitars are built for function more than looks. I keep to the basics with sound being the first priority. I have learned by doing what makes for an overall great cigar box guitar that people can afford and be satisfied that their money was well spent. Some guitars out there look beautiful but cannot even be tuned up. My guitars work. My necks do not warp like most others due to the steel rod I put in them. No one has ever sent me one complaint in over 30 sales.
