my new fret-less cigar box guitar is on the way

I will soon have a custom fret-less 3 string cigar box guitar made by Bobby Bergland of  Bobby Taylor guitars in Austin. It is in the mail now.  I can't wait to play it. This came about because I was thinking I wanted a 3 string fret-less instrument with a square body to use in creating some new music. I suddenly realized that the instrument I was envisioning was none other than a cigar box guitar. And Bobby Bergland  of Bobby Taylor Guitars (named after him and his former guitar making partner Taylor Green, who is my wife Kate's cousin) was the one to do it. 

Look for a few pieces of music in the future by the WALKING WILLOWS featuring this guitar:
