Creating instruments out of things that shouldn't be able to make music!
A few years ago at a folk art festival I saw somebody with cigar box guitars and being somebody who has always played music and built anything that came to mind I just had to look into them more.
I learned these are based on old time primitive stringed instruments people would make out of anything they found. I set out on building some of these and loved making something that you can play music with!
After building some very basic ones I decided to make a new goal of making these instruments play and sound the best I could while still keeping a little bit of the old style.
These days I've moved up from building pieced together cigarbox ukuleles to full blown mahogany with rosewood necks, electric guitars made out of old ammo boxes, ukuleles that have great acoustic volume even though its just an old metal lunch box!
Oh and can't forget about the skull guitars....
Owner, Maker, Photography
Besides building instruments I work as a photographer, graphic designer and cinematographer/editor for film and video.
My goal is to make the cigar box instruments sound as good as they possibly can without modifying the box a lot.
