Hi, I’ve been getting into cigar box guitars for the last 5 months or so and my brother-in-law got his hands on a sweet cigar box and asked if I’d help him build a cigar box bass. I’ve got a lot of questions about doing this, from the scale length, neck length, tuning and string diameter of a 4 string bass CBG, pickups, bridges, etc. needed to do this. Would you be able to provide answers/guidance on doing this, or could point me in the right direction? Thank you! ........... John, I would recommend you check into Cigar Box Nation, a site originally started by Shane Speal, now administered by CB GItty. (https://www.cigarboxnation.com) You'll find answers to these and any other CBG questions you could possibly have!

Just taking a moment to share my appreciation. I was gifted a Rose 4-string cigar box slide guitar with resonator and vents and pickup, along with glass bottle neck slide by my brother a few years ago, and it continues to be a favorite. It looks and sounds beautiful. The slide is its own artistic statement. Thank you....... Thank you Mike. My wife, MaryAnn, is the slide maker!
