About the company:
Papa’s Boxes is a family business, operating in the quaint town of Navassa, North Carolina (right outside of Wilmington). Bill Moore, also known as “Papa”, and the owner of Papa’s Boxes, first began this company after attending a Cigar Box Guitar Festival in the Spring of 2004. Bill is a woodworker by trade, and also enjoys a cigar or two every now and then; so his hobbies have turned into a business that provides the joy of instrument-making and custom instruments to people around the world. Although the instruments are mainly focused around a cigar box, Bill has built a custom bass guitar using a wooden wine case box, for an Internet podcast called “The SoupyGato Show”. In 2006, a Papa’s Boxes Ukulele was inducted into the National Cigar Box Guitar Museum. Papa’s Boxes also has the honor of having four concert ukuleles appear in the off Broadway musical in NYC called “Sex, Drugs, and Ukuleles”. For more information, visit their website at
