Hi, my name is John McNair. This is a website about Homemade guitars, Cigar box & 3 string guitars, Cookie tin banjos, and all things made by people like yourself who have decided building and playing homemade instruments is so much more rewarding than buying "name" brand guitars.

I try to post newly uncovered history or stories here every so often, Give the photos time to load on your screen, some of the photos are huge, I wanted to display them nicely, so some will take time to load on your computer.

You can also add your email to the list and get emailed with the latest stories strait to your email inbox.

The New Timer

 I finished up this 1857 Old Timer guitar this week. It's a project I have been working on for about 20 days. All of the metal work is done in Silver/Aluminum that I've made to match. This guitar is a 3 string guitar and the amp is a 1955 Arvin Radio that I has been  set up like a vintage guitar amplifier.
 
Just wanted to share this photo, I always have one or 2 of these Old Timer guitars for sale at
