OK, I'll put a question mark after that Birthplace ...? ..... Huh?
But really, Termoking has found yet another cigar box or homemade type guitar, I'm unsure? but it's a photo with German World War 1 soldiers playing their trench made tin can bass and guitar. The guitar is clearly a box guitar of some sort. These old photos are so common it kinda seems like they put cigar box guitars on the map.
It's hard to find photos of early Americans with homemade box guitars, I have only a few, but European photos are always being found.
Fest your eyes on this wonderful photo and let it inspire you to get out in your workshop and help keep the tradition alive of making your own musical instruments.
This photo is dated December 1916 with German soldiers.
