Build your own cigar-box guitar...

by Chris Randall
 



This is an easy one, and almost certainly to good result. Cigarboxguitars.com has lots of information about how to build and play a cigar-box guitar, including making it electric via a piezo transducer or winding your own pickups. Serious fun here, especially if you're in to DIY effects and circuit-bending. Instead of a cigar box, use an empty Speak 'n' Spell case, and build effects in it. You'll be the life of the party.

I wasn't trying to piss in your Cheerios, just pointing out a mag you might dig.

that would be a good guitar to write " I've got those Pinna Sack Blues " on
