Stainless Steel F-hole Cover Pair - Great for Cigar Box Guitars
These beautiful custom metal parts are absolutely perfect additions to that special cigar box guitar or other homemade instrument build. These parts are Made in the USA, cut via a special chemical etching process to our design, and we are proud to be able to offer these high-quality parts to our customers.
These sound hole covers are meant to go over the classic "F-hole" shape. They can really dress up an instrument! They are 3 3/4" (95.25mm) in length, 1 1/8" wide (31.75mm) and about 1/32" thick. Mounting screws are not included with these sound hole covers. See the pictures for installation examples (note that the pics might show other varieties of this product or similar products, to give you an idea of how they are used on an instrument).
Each of these parts has a nice semi-shiny finish, and should be able to be used as is right out of the package, though there may be light scratches and scuffs that you can easily remove with steel wool or a buff wheel. These are solid stainless steel and you can polish them up to a mirror shine if you want to! Please, note that mounting hardware is not included for these parts - the mounting holes are sized to take a #2 round-head screw.
By spending a little extra and buying these parts instead of Chinese-made parts, you are supporting American entrepreneurs, while at the same time getting a unique, custom-crafted piece that you just can't get in bulk from overseas. We believe that is something worth supporting!
