Connor - Cigar Box Guitar Class

Connor’s project includes the mass production of 22 electric 3-string cigar box guitars. All cigar boxes are bought from a tobacconist called Thomas Hinds Tobacconist. None of the money for cigar box sales goes to the tobacconist, as they donate the money directly to Winnipeg Harvest. Everything other than the cigar boxes was handmade by Connor. After building the 22 guitars, Connor worked in a middle school with a grade 4/5 class. He talked about the history of the cigar box guitar, taught the students some basic playing skills, and donated all 22 of his guitars to each of the students.
