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.

Australian Soliders 1918

Check out these Australian Prisoners of War with their homemade cigar box violin instruments found in a local newspaper Down Under by Gary Martin.

I guess the photo says it all, no need to caption this!
