    After GASing for a semihollow so hard, I wanted to see what people thought were the coolest f-holes on semi-hollow or hollow body basses. My two favorites are the Enfield Basses by Martin Sims, and the Dingwall Afterburner series.

    enfield.

    What do you think?

    You mean this? I think Atkinson basses are great. Love his relics. I like the Ken Lawrence one. The flow wows me.

    It was the F holes that drew me to the "Unorthodox Guitars" Viola body for my parts bass.

    DSCF4061.

    The f hole is not so spectacular, but I love this bass.

    DSCF4065.

    and then there are these sweet holes.

    Not a bass, but here's a guitar I made that has a pretty neat f-hole (IMHO). It's times new roman.

    That figures.....there's nothing original left. ;) I guess you could take it a step further....The F Stops (Here) ....F.U.....F.ME....F. Everyone. But that's OT.

    Yes, but you have to age it for a really long time for decent sustain. Makes the bass smell awesome too.

    Another non-bass entry, but I always thought the f-holes on the Yamaha Troy Van Leuwen signature guitar were pretty righteous...
