    I love me some BLUE guitars, my dear!!
    I would have thought that Vegas and the Phoenix Valley would have similar rainfall amounts. We moved to the very far west suburb of Phoenix — Buckeye. This past summer, whenever it rained, I cheered! What a strange inversion of what had been the natural order for me. :-0.

    And yes, I bought Marc’s blue F65-CE and I love it!

    Long ago on ebay I found an oval Guild-label sound-hole plug for my [bought-new] '84 F45-CE12. It worked "OK" but when playing in a band with drums/etc I find the best thing is to stuff a t-shirt into the body of the gtr 1st [arched back may make it more feedback-prone] and then put the plug in. A black t-shirt stuffed by itself works pretty well too - doesn't "show" onstage and seems to damp feedback pretty darn well. An LR Baggs Venue pre-amp pedal also helps greatly, has an a sweep-able anti-feedback notch filter. Try the t-shirt thing & see if it works sufficiently for you.

    Cool idea! I just bought a cover from Lute Hole but I will definitely take your suggestion if it doesn’t reduce the feedback enough. Thanks!

    I have a LuteHole for one of my round hole acoustics, and it does a great job, even at full stage volume.

    Few decades ago I was in Leo Kottke concert - at one time he pulled a pair of trousers out of one guitar and told audience, that they work better than towels or anything else he had tried. Quite funny - but shows that different materials have different properties. One could get same size black sheets of different materials and experiment . . .
    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute
