Why Don't Your Cigar Box Guitars Have Sound Holes?

I do put them in my Little Mojo fretless model but if you want one in my fretted cbg's, I'll put one in for you.

"Soundholes enhance bass response. According to Helmhotz resonance theory, you would only need a soundhole the size of a quarter to emit proper bass in a cigar box guitar. Anything more is a waste of soundboard resonance. The natural gaps around the neck joint in a handmade cigar box guitar offer almost as much proper response anyway", Shane Speal, king of the cigar box guitar.
