Unusual to see a fretted cigar box guitar (CBG).  Most times they are non-fretted, and are played with a slide

No frets, it's painted that way, for guidance I guess. Action is high and played with a slide according to tradition. Imma bring the Delta to Stockholm. 😎😋

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(No I won't but I'm very fond of pretending I've got some mojo, until I start playing that is.)

Nice! Is it fretted or are those just fret marks? 

I built a one stringer a couple years ago. I always meant to build one of these but never got to it. Have fun!!

Just marks. 

 

Cool, diddley bow is the real deal. I'm not there yet.

 

Been watching Justin Johnson vids all day and also some Shane Speal stuff. Always wanted to have one but too lazy to build myself. At least I got one now. It's a lot of fun to play that I can tell you.

There's also a DYI cigar box guitar group on FB. Maybe they have a few tips?
