Installing box corner hardware on your cigar box guitar adds a unique and sophisticated touch to your instrument. Not only do they give your guitar an eye-catching look, but they also add stability to the construction by helping to stabilize corner joints. In short, they are both decorative and functional.

When installed using screws, box corners will help strengthen the joints of your guitar, ensuring that it will last for years to come. They can also be used to help hold the box lid securely closed, which can be a challenge for builders.
