That might not always be the case but with this guitar the old saying could well be right. Take a look at the Arturo Fuente Big Box CBG, this thing is massive compared to most cigar box guitars, the box is about 13 inches long by 8.5 inches wide but only about 1.5 inches deep. We think the larger box makes for a great looking guitar and she is very comfortable to play. The large top and big sound holes give you a wonderful acoustic sound and really add to the tone when amplified.
