Dan Morril made a cigar box guitar by following the instructions in MAKE Volume 21. It looks great! I like the way he put one of the tuners on the top of the headstock instead of the side. I might give that a try on one of my future builds.

Dan also posted detailed and humorous build notes, which are well worth reading if you plan to build a cigar box guitar.

I’m extremely satisfied with how it came out. That cigar box was all I could have hoped for, and it sounds pretty freakin’ awesome. I expected kind of a course, ragged, thin sound, at least compared to a real guitar. I strummed this sucker and I was completely shocked — it actually sounds like a guitar!! A real honest to gods guitar!
