sound hole baffle for apx 500

APX series guitars are designed with a focus on playability. Their thin bodies and cutaways that provide greater access to the upper frets, offer smoother switching between electric and acoustic instruments.

I assume you mean a soundhole cover to eliminate feedback ?

Well if your in the UK you can pick up a rubber one for around £7.00 on Ebay

Bear in mind though that rubber one's do alter the tone of your guitar quite a bit so may not be suitable for your needs.

In my opinion though what you need is a LuteHole Cover. These are manufactured in the USA but if you contact Madison & Fith here in the uk at http://www.madisonandfifth.co.uk/ I think you can buy direct from them...although they are more expensive here of course.

In the US of course it's no problem, you just go along to http://www.lutehole.com/ and you can order direct from them

The big advantage of the Lutehole cover, part from looking a whole lot better, is it eliminates feedback with hardly any detriment to the guitar's tone, also you can mike the sound hole and still get a good result, where normally miking a soundhole gives you a bass heavy sound that you don't always want.

Anyway, let us know if you buy one and what you think of it.
