D.I.Y. Guitars

Some people are just resourceful...and super creative.  A Florida man, Steve Cinnamon, has begun making and selling his own homemade guitars.  These aren't your everyday guitars however, they're made out of cigar boxes.  This tradition has been around since the civil war era and Cinnamon made it his new hobby after a friend showed him his own creation.  Cinnamon has a profound respect to the early makers of these unique guitars saying, “I think what amazes me the most is how the guys back in the old days built these things.  I mean, I’ve got a drill press, I’ve got a sander, I’ve got a router, but those guys had nothing.” Check out some pictures of these awesome guitars.  Want one? You can purchase your very own cigar guitar under the title “Cottin Pickin Blues” on Facebook.  Remember, Christmas is just around the corner and what is better than a one of a kind guitar?
