This little guy has worked wonders. Not only did I buy for the amazing deal around 5 dollars, but it slipped into my soundhole in 2 seconds, and even 'UNPLUGGED' this adds a a certain quality to the sound. OBviously I didn't buy it to use it unplugged.. So i plugged it in at the first gig with it, and sure enough; NO feedback whatsoever, so i was able to be louder in my mix than ever before, which only boosted the quality of the floor mix. It really did create great tone along with destroying the screech. 4.5 features because I'm sure this wont fit EVERY guitar, and 4.5 quality because the rubber does cling to skin particles and pick particles after fingerpicking. Does that bother me? Nah, it fits and it rocks! There is a little bit of blood around my soundhole from rocking anyways ;). Haha Overall I love this thing. Looks great too, just looks like a shadow when it is in. Cool!

The e-catalog description said they fit all standard guitars. In our home there are seven acoustic guitars; I bought three "Screeching Halt" hole plugs, and they don't fit any of the guitars. The catalog should make it very clear that the hole must be exactly 4" in diameter. I'll return the plugs.

            This product definitely does its job. I get zero feedback, and looks good in my red guitar. Only downside is I play an Ovation and the strings are set really low, so I have to loosen the strings all the way just to slide it into the sound hole. That's why I give 4 stars and not 5.

              I'm not sure why some other reviewers were having problems fitting this into their guitars because I haven't found one that it won't fit. It's designed to be a snug fit, so it takes a little finagling to get it in, but it's not really THAT difficult, and certainly requires no mangling to get it in. I primarily bought it for my Alvarez Regent; it fits perfectly. Best of all, it does exactly what it's supposed to: eliminates feedback. That being the case, I would have been happy with it even at triple the price.

                Does keep tones from feeding back when stepping up to adjust amp. I use this in a couple of different guitars that have always been notorious for feed back. The Soundhole Plug goes in easier than it comes out. Perhaps one for each instrument is a better solution. And it does put an end to screeching problems that can plague us all.

                    Doesn't fit any of my Ovation Baladeers. Doesn't fit any of my Martins. Doesn't even fit my Epiphone beater acoustic...Exactly what guitars does this thing fit in? ...None, as far as I can tell... If I tried really, really hard, I could barely squeeze it into the soundhole on the Ovation, but it was so tight that the center of the cover buckled inwards- looked cheesy and didn't seal the soundhole because of it. I don't know if they got a bad batch that are too big, or if there is some mystery guitar that these magically fit perfect in- but they are useless to me in *all* of my acoustics...

                    So you're aware- the bottom side of the cover- the part that goes into the soundhole is right around 4 and 1/32" (right around 102mm), but tapers to a bigger size as it goes towards the topside, kind of like a large wine bottle cork, and it doesn't like to be crammed in. If your soundhole is 4 and 1/16th or a hair bigger, it might work for you, but if the hole is exactly 4 inches or less- forget it...

                    I puchased this upon request of my wife's band leads after a practice session full of feedback issues. The diameter is too big to fit her Martin OMC. 30 minutes of sanding on the drill press with a sanding wheel I got it to fit. Buyer beware.
