I've always wondered why f-holes on violins, violas, guitars, etc are shaped the way they are? does it produce a specific tone? amplify the sound more? does it just look good? what is it about the shape that is so appealing?

I saw F-holes tattooed on a stripper's lower back.
It was one of the sexiest things I had ever seen.

Yeah and they're just paint (or stickers?).

But I think PG's guitar(s) look alright with f-holes. Would be cooler if they were real, like on a thinline.


Anyway, not sure why f-holes are shaped the way they are, but I like the shape of 'em.
