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 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.

Andrew Stones' handmade Instruments

Here is a matching set of 4 really beautiful cigar box instruments made by Andrew Stone.

I would love one! The shorter scale length ( or longer Uke scale length in this case) is perfect for backpacking, camping or a day at the park!
