Early Guitars

These are the first four guitars - and one diddly bow - that I made back around 2010. All four are "Uncle Crow" style guitars, with the neck simply bolted onto the box lid, and hardware store eye-bolts for tuners. I used craft boxes rather than cigar boxes for these, and a cardboard frozen meat box for the broomstick diddly bow.

Search out "Uncle Crow" on YouTube to see his videos on making a cigar box guitar in less than an hour for under $20. These videos launched my guitar building career!  


Guitar #1 - My very first, circa 2010 
Yes, a Tilapia box guitar. Anything is possible!
