Jake - Antebellum Instruments - Old Cigar Box Uke

I periodically like to check my link to Jake Wildwood's Antebellum Instruments blog. I have been looking at some of these "homemade" instruments recently on eBay. [Keni Lee Burgess has some great videos on YT with 3, 4, and 6 string cigar box guitars.] Some are fretless for sliding bottleneck blues. Jake takes pictures of his adopted and repaired instruments as if they were his children - click the title above to see this old cigar box ukulele entry as well has hear him sing play on this vintage instrument. Thank you Jake, HU
