Photo detail

This April 17, 2013 photo shows the inside of the cigar box guitar Toby Tolbert made in August 2012 in Camden Point, Mo. Kevin M. Kraft spent years unsatisfied with the instruments he had and was considering commissioning a custom-made guitar when he came across an alternative: Making one himself from a cigar box and other simple materials. Toby Tolbert of Camden Point, Mo., learned about the instruments from Kraft and made one with his daughter just for fun. But the guitar generated more interest than he'd anticipated and led him to begin a business, Barnyard Custom Cigar Box Guitars, in 2010. (AP Photo/The St. Joseph News-Press, Sait Serkan Gurbuz)
