Hi, this is a website about Homemade guitars, Cigar box guitars, 3 and 4 string guitars, Cookie tin banjos, and the history of hand made and homemade musical instruments from around the world.

Give the photos time to load on your screen. Some of the photos are large in size. I wanted to display them nicely, so some will take time to load on your computer screen.

Cigar Shop Puerto Rico 1912

Like a kid in a candy store, imagine all of the wonderful goodies a guitar builder could find in this store!

 Dated 1912 San Juan, Puerto Rico
