The Maritza, 3-string Cigar Box Guitar

I have recently completed this 3-string slide guitar and i am VERY HAPPY with it indeed. Pretty damn elegant for a cigarbox i'd say. Sounds great too. Big smooching thank you to Marko. His slide playing expertise were very helpful in fine tuning the design. Oh, and his soldering technique helped me electrify it. You can plug this sucker in! Video coming soon...

How does it sound?

I love the deer on top :).

Your carrot cake cigar box is still waiting here for a new project, but at the moment we have to keep the house tidy because it is for sale.

Hi Joost,
I think it sounds wonderful. Marko is the slide player and he really likes the way it plays and sounds. I'm thrilled with it. (I love the deer too!)
