A Guitar I built for a friend

in #music4 years ago

Building a guitar is not as daunting as it sounds. In fact, it can be a lot of fun. Especially if you make it a little easier on yourself and make them out of cigar boxes. After building several for myself, I started building them for my friends.

Here is one I built for a friend who is a big fan of Betty Boop. The reason she is wearing boxing gloves is because my friend also works in the boxing world and so I thought it would be a nice touch.

It is only two strings because, well, she does not play guitar and most likely never will play this one.


I used a woodburner to make the letters on the neck, the heart, and the picture of Betty Boop on the headstock.


Needless to say, she loved it. It was a great pleasure to make something for someone else with no ulterior motives.

Have you made cigar box guitars?

What do you think of this one?

Be well!


Very nice and very creative!
