Well, what do yo think? My unprofessional solution is not wholly disagreeable to me, but it should still be done professionally at some point. Ian up at Lark Street Music can do it, but he's swamped for the next three months, so these will do until then. They are 5/16" plugs painted amber and will pop right out. I didn't glue them in.
Works for me and you get to play it the next three months or may leave it like that.

For some reason I like the plugged holes better than left open. Not sure why, but especially if they're tight (not too tight) and removeable I'd say good enough!!

That looks like a very reasonable and not-unattractive temporary solution to me. Nice job.

Those Gruhn era guitars are just fantastic. I'd love to find a decent D-60 to try out, but I've never seen one come up locally.

I'm located in Idaho. The nearest city with any noticeable activity is Spokane, Wa.

I have one too. And it's the one guitar I'll never sell!

When I bought my house in 2008, I sold (and yes I miss it) my Guild F30rls instead of the F44. The F30rls was magnificent. But my F44 is kind of soulmate. It's amazing guitar, and any time I let someone play it, they rave about.

Somewhere I have the Frets magazine review from way back when. If I can find it, I'll post it.

I have some pretty amazing guitars hanging around the house these days, but I find myself playing the F-44 as much as any of them. My wife is our vocalist, and I back her up a lot. She comments on the F-44 every time I use it. It just has the smoothest, most even sound that is incredibly well suited for vocal back up.
