StumbleCol – 4 String Cigar Box Guitar

by Col on December 15, 2011

I`m taking a look at my Home Made instruments, today my 4 String Cigar Box Guiar. This was my first Cigar Box Guitar, I did NOT make this one, I bought it on ebay.

I have Gigged with it, regularly, for more than 2 years and it is still, as good a Cigar Box Guitar Now, as it was the first time, that I picked it up. It was this Cigar Box Guitar that has set me on this journey.

The very first songs that I ever wrote on a Cigar Box Guitar, were written on this one.

I wrote, When I win the Lottery, worked out my version of Son House`s Death Letter and then wrote, Can`t Find My Way Home. All three in a short space of time and that was it, I was hooked on these Cigar Box Guitars!

I never dreamt, when I got this first Cigar Box Guitar, that it would change and take over my life, but it has!
