#1: Re: How can I control feedback in an ES-330?

&gt; I have an ES-330TD and have found that when I play amped there are
&gt; some notes that feed back. I know that moving away from the amp is an
&gt; option but I'd like to know if there is any other way to control this.
&gt; I don't play loud but I do need to play loud enough to be heard over
&gt; my wife's baby grand piano if we want to play together.

You can try a soundpost if you don't want to use plugs. For something like
an ES330, they work pretty well and are easy to install. Just cut a piece
of dowel rod to the correct length and put it near the bridge, just like in
a violin. It can take some trial and error to get exactly the right length
and the right spot. It couples the back to the top, and greatly reduces
feedback. It also greatly damps the acoustic volume, but there isn't much
there anyway in a 330.

I put a sound post in my ES-165. I took the idea from a sweet playing
Guild X-170 Manhattan. Like ES-330's, a Manhattan is a narrow
hollowbody.

I also put plugs in the sound holes. The guitar will not feed back.

Also, The amp/guitar combination is a big factor in feedback. Amps have
natural EQ's. If you combine a guitar with a certain feedback frequency
with an amp that has a high EQ for that frequency, its gonna be tough
to control.

I've got a late 70's Aria 330 copy and it has a sort of soundpost
right under the neck pickup. It's a hell of a lot lighter than a
soundblock equipped guitar like the 335 and has never fedback AFAICR.
