    Default Cigar Box guitars? Anyone?

    Recently-
    These bit into me, and I'm itching to make a few up. Look simple enough. Heres some plans:

    LOTS of different ways to set them up. I think it would be a blast.Anyone else had any experience with these? Maybe someone has made some or has the itch as well?
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    A very close friend of mine was given one of these that his older brother built. It's pretty cool. His older brother has built several guitars and is a very fine musician in his own right. He's a jazz nut and plays both Bass and guitar.

    I've never played or made one of these, but I have been interested. I was trying to devise my own little instrument a few years ago, and upon searching around on the web, I found a bunch of sites devoted to cigar box guitars. They can have a really neat sound. One of these days I'd like to make one.
