Paul Dittmeier is a Hobby Builder from Springfield, Missouri. He is retired from Chevrolet and a former Marine Corps helicopter pilot. He started building when his best friend wanted a Cigar Box Guitar. It snowballed from there. Since starting in 2019, he has built many CBGs and given away over half of them as gifts. He sells occasionally, mainly to support building more. He stated: “I primarily build to put the gift of music into peoples hands". His builds can be seen and he can be contacted through his CBG Facebook page: PJD Strings.
