A crude, but impressive 4-string fiddle has recently been discovered in Burnet TX that features an Addison Tinsley Tobacco's Natural Leaf plug tobacco box for the body and the builder's actual signature and date on the back.
Cigar box guitarist, Clint Herriman purchased it at an antique store as a way to inspire his own instruments. After several months, he contacted me to see if he could donate it to my collection, ensuring that it would be seen by many people.
I've recently done an extensive photo session of this instrument, reveal the builder and dig into it's history. Read about "Virginia's Cigar Box Fiddle" at the all new CigarBoxGuitars.com.
