The mystery parcel mentioned a couple of posts ago, which was a present for one of my sons, was opened to reveal this box…
When duly opened, its contents were revealed as the following:
This is a Cigar Box Guitar kit, from Crimson Guitars where I shall be going at the end of October for my own guitar build. My son is also interested in guitars and likes making things – he helped me with my previous kit guitar too. He liked the idea of one of these kits as a birthday present, and so here it is. I chose the Ultra kit, which includes a small fret levelling kit (the rocker, beam and file). This kit includes a Maple neck and a Purpleheart fretboard, with the fret slots pre-cut.
I have a few questions to ask of Crimson Guitars because there seem to be one or two small issues with the kit. I will report back when they are resolved.
We filmed the unboxing and I will edit and upload that to my YouTube channel as soon as I can. We also plan on making some videos of the build, which will probably happen gradually over the next few weekends.
