Check out this fresh attic find, it came up for sale on eBay. Gotta love ebay, it's king for finding long lost history. You can discover more than old musical instruments, you can also find historical aritfacts off all types that were just stuck in boxes in the back of peoples attics and sheds.
When poeple pass away, their children or grandchildren usually don't know the stroy behind some of these objects so they just list them for sale on ebay for pennies of there true value.
Who's waiting to find a undiscovered Declaration of Independence for 5 bucks??? ....Me!!!
Well, maybe that's wishful thinking, but there sure is lots of these old cigar box instruments popping up for sale lately.
Check out that tail piece...its defiantly an original Red Dog for sure...I think so??? Ha Ha!
Made from a soup can lid of some type, this looks like one of those old school fretless slide guitars...no frets, no frills, just boat loads o' fun!
Check out this guitar below made by my friend Brian Romero.
I just love his work and wanted to share it. His stuff is really inspiring, so I decided to post this over here, this use to be on the 3 string guitar website but I wanted to put it here so all could see. This is what homemade is all about. Study the photos, I will let the picture do the taking, this is just wonderful and made with such ingenuity.
Here is a full shot, this looks like it's a lot of fun to play. Brain has made many great guitars, too many to list, but you can use this for a jump start in your own building, Head on out to your garage and see what you can come up with!
Cigar Box Guitar Pickups
I also am building and selling cigar box guitar pickups. Everybody has been asking me, so I am getting back into the swing of things and going to be making pickups for sale.
If you would be interested in adding one to your won guitar, I explain them in the video below. I am only making them right now in aged brass and bell brass and sometimes in silver (aluminum) in color. I will not be making then in copper as stated in the video. (also not in stainless)
They are held down with 4 small screw holes, one at each corner, I use the same screws used for tuners, in both black or silver.
I also have many new designs since making this video. Contact me to see the new art I have and what's available and the colors and designs I have in stock.
If you have questions, email me, my name is John, my contact email is email@example.com or you can visit my website, click here at Red Dog Guitars. com
Well, I guess that it, I will post more stuff soon. Thanks, John
