4-String guitar Project

Inspired by cigar box guitars… but I didn’t start with a cigar box. I used the X-carve on many of these steps.

Now I just have to learn how to play it :wink:


That is incredible. Did you design the whole thing?

Thanks. Yes… except the main butterfly pattern on the body I found on the web.

How does it sound?

That remains to be seen sortof… if you click on the link after “Finished” you’ll find a little clip of me sorta-kinda- playing it, but I’ve never learned to play slide… and the tunings are different… and I’m only mediocre on a normal guitar :wink:

My son, on the other hand, is fantastic on guitar… I’m going to try to get him to play it when he is home at Christmas so I can have a clip that may sound better…


Fantastic work.

Clarification… someone asked some questions and it became apparent that the information on the steps that I added doesn’t always show… If, when viewing these images, if you click on the little “i” near the top right, you will see a few explanations. https://goo.gl/photos/45hpTH3ybnadwieS6

Love the sink strainers inlay. Beautiful work.
