Cigar Box Guitars

During the American Civil and right through the Great Depression, musicians, who had the talent to make music but could not afford a guitar, would create their own six-strings out of cigar boxes. They would take an old cigar box, attach a broom stick to it and use wires from a screen door for the strings. Once made, down-on-their luck bluesmen would strum a tune about the hard times they experienced. Think you can make your own Cigar Box Guitar?
