Cigarbox Guitars
24-JUN-2009

Cigarbox Guitars

Formerly used for holding imported cigars, these have given
new life as unique guitars which contain electronic fittings
and plug slots so they can be played through an amplifier.

I picked these up at an art & music event recently and plan to
hang them on the wall in the living room.

What a clever and unique idea to make those guitars! They are lovely and even can play, you say? Wonderful find and a good buy, Dan :)

Interesting. Fragile boxes with 'inimitable' resonance.
