    Interesting. Very non-traditional. If I were looking for a thinline I would consider it.

    I wonder if they'd build one for me with an A hole.

    Nope. If they do that to a guitar of mine they pay me to advertise for them.

    Besides, they're not that big of a brand except to musicians. And they'll know from looking what you're playing.

    Just no.

    I am sure that it would work as it would allow some resonance, but it is too "brand name" contrived. At least with the original f hole, it shared some tradition with vintage violins. Just a little too "groovy" for me. Aside from the silly f hole, those guitars actually look really cool.

    If it was in the normal place, the F would look OK… But still… Did the branding team come up with this idea? :)

    Yeah, it looks terrible in that spot. The same design (perhaps re-sized) would look much better in the usual spot, if perhaps a touch silly.
