I was at a campfire at my neighbors Saturday night and a guy pulled out a two string guitar made out of a cigar box, complete with an electronic pickup. The only thing cooler than it's look was how good it sounded.

This is my neighbors son Luke trying it out. You need to watch the videos below to get the full appreciation for it.

He should make a matching Ukulele out of a cigarette pack.

"So I went ahead and made me a guitar. I got me a cigar box, I cut me a round hole in the middle of it, take me a little piece of plank, nailed it onto that cigar box, and I got me some screen wire and I made me a bridge back there and raised it up high enough that it would sound inside that little box, and got me a tune out of it. I kept my tune and I played from then on."
—Lightnin' Hopkins


James "Super Chikan" Johnson makes some unusual guitars and can really make 'em sound great...
