More or less. I entered it in a cigar box guitar site contest with the rules specifying you need to build with a paint can lid, otherwise build to impress. I took some maple sides I had, built the back an top out of Baltic Birch plywood, a Sugar Pine board for the neck I got from a pallet. Beat a piece of aluminum to make the resonator cover, drilled and filed the numbers in it, picked a color to paint it that would go along with the Maple sides (they were baked bringing out the dark color) and the flamed Maple binding. Did a layered distressed sunburst and ended up with what you see here. I thought you guys (and gals?) might appreciate it. Not a serious instrument, more an art-form. I plan on spinning a cone for it to give it a better voice.
