Cigar Box Guitars: The Ultimate DIY Guide for Makers and Players of the Handmade Music Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Part DIY guide, part scrapbook – this book takes you behind the music to get a glimpse into the faces, places and workshops of the cigar box revolution.

Cigar box guitars have never been more popular and now you can learn to make your own. You don't need to spend a lot of money and you don't need to have a shop full of tools. All you need to do is follow the author's step-by-step instructions for making three different styles of guitar. They're fun (some would say addictive) to build and even more fun to play!
