What in your opinion is the perfect size cigar box for a CBG? I read that 12" X is the perfect size for a guitar? How about 9"X? Builders your opinion counts. Seems like there are plenty of CBoxes in the 9" range.
But scale and bridge placement come into consideration I guess.
Your thoughts? Thank you!
I had a Taylor Big Baby and it was awesome!
I guess any size as long as it has a Humbucker. LOL!
Thank you! very nice!
I like that Zen approach and I have to agree. It seems one can visualize it before it's created. I see a little instrument in all the boxes that have come into my possession.
Like Bob Taylor said "I have to complete the ones I have before I start a new one" well, or something like that.
One can sell a completed instrument faster/easier than one on the drawing board. Or at least use it as an example.
I too, suffer from a disorder, commonly known as GAS or TWAS (Tone Wood Acquisition Syndrome),
I have more than enough that I will never be able to build with it all. LOL!
I'm working on 11 at the same time, and I think there are 2 more unfinished somewhere in the shop. I stopped counting the box's.
I don't know that there is a perfect size, but the deeper box's seem to make a nice sound with good volume, 2 1/2 - 3" deep with a good sized face if you can find it. Macanudo portofino is a good example.
