Cigar Box Guitar #40...

I was in a hurry so these are not the greatest pictures but I have cigar box guitar #40 up for sale. It has a nice clean sound, three strings, a dual piezo pickup and sells for $75. 
Black cigar boxes are a good seller but red comes in second. 

 Romeo Y Julieta. It's a guitar for lovers. 

Just for you history buffs here is the earliest known recording of a cigar box guitar. 
"Beans" is a very obscure 78 record recorded by minstrel performers, "Beans" Hambone - El Morrow in 1927. The song was a staple in vaudeville and snake oil medicine shows and tells the story of prisoners forced to eat only beans.
