Cigar Box Guitar #7


This was my first commission. My in-laws through a party and someone saw CBG #5 hanging on their wall. She asked about it and said that her son played guitar and would love to have one and that his birthday was coming soon. I built it for her and created this video to send along with the instrument (that's why I'm addressing him personally in the video). I was rather nervous about the whole thing. I'd only given away instruments to friends and family at that point. This time someone was paying and I feared that someone (the giver or recipient) might be disappointed. It turns out the recipient of the gift was very happy with it and started playing it right away.

Here are a couple more close-up photos:
