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 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 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.
