Hi All,

Recently brought a Fender Stratacoustic (Electric Acoustic) and when I hook it up to my new Marshall MicroStack it has tonnes of feedback.

Obviously the closer I sit the worst it is, but doesnt seem to make much difference if I Sit 4 meters away.

Someone has suggested I plug up the hole, but am reluctant as I think this may affect its sound considering its an elec acoustic.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Cheers
TVE

i have a yamaha apx7a, which is basically an acoustic which is designed for spending most of it's life being amplified.

it came with a really neat removable soundhole cover which i find indispensable. it's a fairly thick rubber thingy that is very easy to install and remove.

you don't necessarily need to stuff your guitar with wool. i'm sure you can track down a soundhole cover for your particular model.

Hi Damo7v,

Ive been told I can get a rubber one that is paper thin but am concerned it willl affect sound...have you had any issues with it affecting your sound?

naturally it's going to affect your acoustic tone while you have the cover on. but your amplified tone shouldn't suffer, because most acoustic-electrics at our end of the price/sophistication range rely on bridge-mounted transducers as opposed to a soundhole-positioned microphone.
