We've customised ours by adding a little business card holder from timber scraps - please note the kit does NOT include this. We sanded off the "horns" of the guitar to make it more cigarbox shaped. We also shifted the figure over to one side of the battery drive box to get the drive belts at the optimum tension, which also gave us the space for the business card holder (not included) or you might need to shim up the between the battery box and the plinth with a 5mm spacer to achieve the same effect. When I put together the one in the video, I was little sloppy assembling the strumming arm and push rod, so I added two little dowel offcuts to ensue that the arm actuator didn't slip off the top of the pushrod (you can see this little modification in the pics in case you have the same issue), but that was my fault rather than the kit! I also recommend building the drive mechanism and the kit at the same time, so you can see how they work together and don't glue on the  hand drive crank at all if you are making the battery drive version.  I also suggest dry-fitting the parts together before you commit to gluing, but if you can make a cigar box guitar, you can put together one of these kits.
