a Homemade cigar-box Guitar!

i know its not a Ukulele, and its hasnt been restored!
But...i built it from a kit with Chickenbone John at one of his fantastic workshops.

It plays really well, even has a pick-up installed and sounds amazing!

It starts with a roughly cut neck, and a cigar box. The neck has to be fitted into the box.
The electrics are installed, string it up and thats it!!

if you want one, get in touch with John at

Heres the bare bones of it

Frets are glued in place (its a piece of paper, glued to the neck)

Thats it finished. how amazing is that?

Me & John
