Cigar Box Guitars

BILLY THE KID


This is my first Cigar Box Guitar build. I used a wood burner to create the Billy the Kid wanted poster image in the box and drilled "bullet holes" to second as sound holes. The bridge, nut and volume knob are made from .44 caliber bullets which is the caliber Sheriff, Pat Garrett used to kill Billy. A replica of Garrett's badge is mounted on the headstock and I used a gun holster as a strap.
