Not to long ago Fernando Amorim got a phone call late one night from a friend and fellow cigar box guitar builder who said he needed to come on down to check out a new billboard they just put up in Viana do Castelo.
So he went over to see it and was blow away, he took a cell phone photo for us to see…it's some kind of soap or detergent advertising with a girl holding a homemade square guitar with bottlecap knobs…now that's "heavy duty" cool!
So, here is the cell phone shot in all its glory from Viana do Castelo, Portugal.
Homemade Tin Pot Guitar!
I bet this thing put out some old fashioned twang!
I left the photos full size, you can click them to see the large full up close shots.
Check out the fret dots on the neck.
Look how the person made fret location dots.
