Madcap Instruments

rooster banjo I


New project!

I have been painting on cigar boxes and unfinished instruments built by Drew Hummer of Madcap Instruments.  There are more instruments near completion that will be documented soon; until then, here are some pics of a cigar box guitar that I gave my Dad for Christmas.  (He tunes it like a banjo and plays it clawhammer style.  It sounds great.)

The four metal circles are sound holes.  Or a sunrise.  Because it’s a rooster.

The back was painted with acrylic, then stained and lacquered.
