My partners father is well into his blue grass and he what I have dubbed a brutally (british hill billy) with hid birthday approaching I decided, as we have a lil one on the way and a lack of cash, to build him a cigar box guitar. I have all the parts so far apart from a neck, I have a lot of timber laying around and basically wanted to know what would be best suited for the build. Decking timber is my current no.1 but wanted to know if there is anything else I could use?
