I have been making cigar box guitars since 2007 as Soundbox Guitars, and playing them live, touring and recording with my band The Budrows since 2008. I had sold hundreds of custom guitars, but saw a need for a build-it-yourself kit to put the art of “making music” into your hands. At the time I developed my kit, there were no other kits on the market that offered the neck with all holes and cut outs done for you….weird, right? What good is a guitar without a neck? So, I set out to make a kit that had all the pieces you would need, including the neck, with ALL the cutouts and holes pre-drilled, so it would go together with ease and with a bare minimum of tools. The simplicity and completeness of the kit allows the builder to focus in on customizing the guitar to make it their own finished creation. I stand behind my guitars, because I play my guitars regularly in live music shows and on recorded albums.
