A few months ago, I was at the Leucadia Art Festival. I ran across Smoke Box Bob’s Guitars made from recycled cigar boxes. Not only are they reusable but would make interesting art pieces. According to Bob, cigar box guitars have been around since the Civil War, when they first started packaging cigars in boxers. He is trying to revive the art of the ‘handmade, reused, recycled and re-purposed musical instruments.
Bob offers more than just Guitars- ukuleles, standup basses, wash tub basses, custom wash boards and diddley bow’s are a part of his collection of Green Musical Instruments.
