Cigar Box Guitar kit coming soon

Not for me, but for one of my sons who has his birthday this month.  He was interested in the cigar box guitar kits and so I’ve ordered one of the Litterbug kits from Crimson Guitars.  He already knows about it, so I’m not spoiling the surprise; what he doesn’t yet know is which of the three wood selections I picked – maple and purpleheart, meranti and ebony or purpleheart and rosewood.

I don’t know whether they have the kits in stock or if we have to wait for them to make it so I don’t yet have a delivery date.  We are going to build it together, which will also be good practice for my guitar building course later this year, and we will probably make a few videos about the process.

More news will come in a week or two, with a bit of luck, which might include an unboxing video.  Stay tuned! 🙂

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
