It seems like almost all hollow or semi hollow guitars have "F" shaped f holes (hence the name) but I does anybody have any ideas for a different shape for them? I might build a semi hollow and I'd like to be more original with it.

Trini Lopez have the diamond shaped, B.C. Rich has dagger shaped, Gretsch have G-holes.


A-Holes would be kinda comical.

I like crescent moon shapes on the semi-hollow PRS LE

Wait, so your question was "please tell me how to be original"? Just search google to get ideas. Ormsby once did a shark shaped f-hole if I recall correctly. Then I've seen sweeping vine type f-foles, simple crescent types, many different f shapes, different locations on the guitars body, you could make it look like a mouth, or the letter A (as suggested above, I wonder how many people would get that?) or a hand, or another guitar, or any design, or a wah pedal, or a tree, or waves, or a snake, or any design! Google image it to get some ideas!

no, the question was "please give me ideas that will guide me down the path to originality"

and thanks

D'aquisto's hole still is the most elegant solution - it's acoustically sound (pun intended) too.

You could get away with anything- the cajon i built has a triangle-shaped soundhole with a bar running down the middle.
