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.

Somebody play that thang!

Found this old photo and not much is known about who he is other than the fact that he has made himself some twangy goodness!
He is probably a Vaudeville performer from the 1920's or 30's.

One thing is for sure...he's in "our club," he's got the badge and is a patch wearing member of the ~Homemade Cigar Box Romeos~
