Photos By Tribune News Service. In the hands of Gipson Shoemaker III, the simple wooden box becomes a musical instrument worth hundreds of dollars and capable of producing a raw, gritty and authentic sound. Once a home construction artisan, specialising in faux finishing, painting murals and installing European plaster, the Minneapolis man now makes a living by creating three- and four-stringed guitars out of junk: cigar boxes, vintage hubcaps, ammo containers, lunchboxes, even old bed pans.
As owner of Lucky Devil Guitars gipsonshoemaker. Shoemaker, 48, said he spent much of his life trying to master the six-string guitar. Inspiration struck when he saw It Might Get Loud, a documentary about the electric guitar. At one point in the film, rock guitarist Jack White pounds some nails into a piece of scrap lumber, stretches a wire over a Coke bottle, installs an electric guitar pickup, plugs in an amplifier and makes it wail.
That was enough to persuade Shoemaker to try it himself. He built his first cigar box guitar in

BoLLEN- BACHEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Bloomington, in the count-y of Monroe and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cigar-Boxes; and Ido hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use thc same. My’invention relates to an improvement in cigar-boxes, and particularly to that class in which Inoisture or fragrance is imparted to the cigars; and it consists in the features of construction which will be fully hereinafter de scribed, and pointed out in the claim.
The object of my invention is to provide a. In the drawings, A represents the entire box, consisting of the bottom I, the short, straight rear wall 2, the forwardly-daring side walls,3 3, the elongated audcurved front wall, 4, the lids 5 5, and the handle 6, the general contour of said box being fanshaped. The iixed parts of the box are secured together in the usual manner,and thelids are also suitably secured for opening and closing, as usual.
Suitably secured to the side walls, at the rear end of the box and in front of the rear wall,is a curved plate or strip, 7, of perforated tin, wire-gauze, paper, or otherlike material, which, together with the said rear wall and bottom of the box, forms a chamber for sponge or other absorbent material for containing water or suitable extracts for imparting moisture or vfragrance to the cigars, as may be desired.
The cigars are to be placed in the box with their closed or smaller ends against the perforated moisture-chamber, which not only prevents them from receiving too much moisture, but, in connection with the shape of the box, displays them under attractive arrangement. The object of providing the box with two lids is that it is sometimes desirable to expose only onehalf of the cigars at a time as when they are in bundles to the air or the consumer; also, it is more convenient to open either or both of said lids than it is to open a single lid which covers au entire box.
A small bottle of extract may be supplied with each box of cigars for keeping them suitably moistened and flavored. I am aware that theprovisiou of cigar-boxes and analogous structures’ with moistening devices is not new; also, that cigar-boxes have been provided with handles; but I am not aware that a cigar-box having my peculiar form and construction and arrangement of part-s has hitherto been invented or produced. Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new is- The herein-described fan-shaped cigar-box A, comprising the bottom 1,the short straight rear’wall, 2, the forwardly-Haring side walls, 3.
