There's growing movement of self-expression unfolding in the world of music. Musicians and hobbyists are finding new creative freedom by making their own musical instruments out of unconventional materials. In a modern revival of a great American tradition, sliders, pickers, strummers and makers are coming together in what they call the cigar box guitar revolution. An Obsession for Cigar Box Guitars celebrates the modern craft of their irresistibly alluring instruments.

Professional photographer and woodworking enthusiast David Sutton first chronicled the modern revival of the cigar box guitar in his best-selling book, Cigar Box Guitars. Now he's back to share his obsession with these handmade treasures in an amazing photo gallery that profiles 120 inspiring examples of homemade musical greatness. In a testament to human creativity, these guitars range from simple, cardboard diddley bow-type instruments to wooden box electric six-string models that are more impressive than anything you can buy in a store.

Review:

"In this lavishly illustrated follow-up to his best-selling chronicle Cigar Box Guitars (2012), photographer and cigar box luthier Sutton lovingly captures the artistry of several individuals devoted to building and playing the instruments, illustrating the broad range and musical diversity of cigar box guitars."
