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.

It's Radio-active!




I figured I'd share another super neat guitar amplifier. This old radio is a 1948 Philco "Flying Wedge" AM Radio that I converted into a guitar amplifier and then added an FM radio channel on it to enjoy listening to while working.
I just love to look this "Atomic"guitar amp.

I have a website that explains how to convert just about any old radio into a guitar amplifier,
visit the site here sometime to learn more,

It's super fun and rewarding to bring an old radio back to life.  Give it a try, it's also a lot cheaper than actually buying an amplifier and these old radios just sound so dang cool!
