Of a great gift choice.
Clothsnake, 17.02.2020
This is a bit of a joke.
I was looking at this as a gift for someone who finds the cigar box guitar a fascinating thing. I won’t get them this... it feels cheap and nasty. Part of the fun was meant to be the ‘kit’ element but apart from popping some ferrules into holes and stringing... there is no crafting to do. These are easily built things and I just imagined that this could be a far better ‘kit’.
It’s basically a toy. Mine even seems to have some kind of shrink-wrap that can’t be removed making it look and sound terrible.

I wasn’t expecting a first class piece of equipment for the money... but seriously... this is not a good buy, unless it’s for a child.

Pro:
Cheap
Easy
Does play

Con:
Not cheap for what it is
Not a kit
Looks and sounds horrible

Very nice "paper-box" slide-guitar
g - k, 30.09.2018
Definitely not a professional gear, but it has a very nice roots-blues tone (especially after connecting to an amp)

Cigar Box
Cedricdf, 04.05.2020
A good kit for enjoying the DIY part of the set, but the cigar box is paper made, so not really good. A wood case would be great for that kind of kit.
