Photos of my fifth handbuilt guitar


A few days ago I built my fifth guitar. As usual, I made a lot of mistakes (the frets aren't level, for instance, so I filed them down as needed) but the overall playability is pretty good. The thing I need to work on is volume — it's not very loud.

I'm having a great time building them. I've got plenty of ideas for future guitars, but I better not talk about them or I might not do them.

Keni Lee Burgess has a very nice set of cigar box guitar playing lessons on YouTube.
