HandMade 'Cigar box' Guitar
The cigar box guitar is a primitive chordophone that uses an empty cigar box for a resonator. "Guitar" refers to the traditional instrument and to a string bass. The earliest predecessors had one or two strings compared with the three or more used in today's models.
Generally speaking, strings are connected between
the end of a broomstick or l"x 3" wood slat and to the resonator, the cigar box.
Trace evidence of cigar box instruments exist from 1840 to the 1860s. The earliest illustrated proof of a cigar box instrument known is an etching copyrighted in 1876 of two Civil War Soldiers at a campsite with one playing a cigar box fiddle.

Bose Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
From the pool to the park to the patio, the SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker II provides full-range, portable sound anywhere you go. Advanced Bose technology packs big sound into a small, water-resistant speaker that’s durable enough to take with you however the day unfolds, even if it’s next to the pool.
It’s durably built, with an easy-touch silicone texture that won’t slip out of your hand when you’re on the move. And it’s just as simple to use—voice prompts tell you what device you’re paired to so you don’t have to guess, and if you’re using an NFC-enabled device, just pair with a tap. Need to keep the music flowing?
You’re covered with up to 8 hours of music, and it’s rechargeable via Micro-B USB. There’s even a built-in speakerphone to handle calls without holding your phone. Also download the Bose Connect app to drag and drop Bluetooth connections, unlock features and access updates down the line.
