Thank you for visiting the home of Rose Instruments! Here you will find photos of guitars, banjos, basses, mandolins, ukuleles and more that I've built over the last thirty years, plus the cigar box instruments I've turned to as a hobby since retiring five years ago. However, you may discover something else, the desire to build your own cigar box instrument. The good news is they're both easy and fun to build, and these days there are some great online resources available to help you do just that. While I'm currently working on a links page that will list many of these sites, in the meantime I am always happy to answer questions, point you in the right direction, or otherwise help you get started. So, take a look around. If you like what you see leave me a note. And who knows, one of these days I may be checking out your website!
