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.

There's something awfully curious about this photo...I can't quite place my finger on it, but I'll let you know when I figure it out!
