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.

Can I get a fist bump with that twang?

Check out these German soldiers from World War One. There is several homemade instruments in the background. I just love to see human interaction and personality show through old photos.
I don't know what the 2 guys are doing in the front of the photo but I think this is a great snap shot in time!

1920's antique cigar box guitar

This old homemade cigar box guitar came up for sale today on ebay. It was just found in someone's grandparents estate. If only we knew it's history and maker, I bet it's got a great story to tell us!
