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.


December 7th 1941

I am always looking for vintage cigar boxes on Ebay and awhile back I saw this cigar box for sale and I had never seen one before with this branding and thought this would be great to share at the right time.

I guess a day we will never forget is the best day to show a little pride!

God Bless our Veterans from the "Greatest Generation" and a super duper Thanks for the ones who are serving overseas today and protecting us. Here's to you!


No information was listed with the auction for this box, it ended up selling for 11.99.... still about as cool as it gets!

On the Flip-Side, if you need something to spark up your cigar, how about these vintage matchboxes.

Anyone in particular that catches your eye?
