    I built a guitar out of a Cigar box as well (Cuban - legal up here in the great white north)...I used a stew-mac rosewood fretboard and some other economy parts and put a tele neck pickup about where the middle pickup on a strat would be....now I'm looking for parts to make a Cigar box bass......I think the Cigar box way is a good way to start.....and if it doesn't turn out perfect it adds to the character of a folk-style instrument.......btw My cigar box sounds awesome in open G and is a 6 string....

    The box was given to me by someone here who can afford the full boxes......I find that it's more cost effective to buy empty boxes from shops rather than smoking the whole box...The box I used, if full, would be over $900....not a typo....and an empty box is like 5 -10......I enjoy a cigar occasionally and I do keep the rings and tubes of the ones I smoke.......the tubes do not make good slides
