Anybody build them?

 

I was thinking of getting a kit and having a fun little project for fall/winter.

My regular hangout (coal oven pizza-craft beer-blues/jazz place) has a wall of them that are fun and inspirational.  Figured I'd use one for a cheezy blues/slide thing.

They even have a Van Halen Cigar Box Guitar!

I've wanted to, just haven't gotten around to it. I have the Guitar World guide bookmarked and have read through it a couple of time.

There are similar. You are really only limited by imagination. Paul McCartney actually plays one on "Give Me Some Slack" with Nirvana.

I had no idea these were as much of a thing as they seem to be. A little googling turned up some rather neat creations.

 

For the bass side...
