When it came to the guitars of old, one of their most striking features were the beautiful soundhole rose carvings. It was only when mass production of instruments began that craftsman dropped the time-consuming and delicate hand carving of soundhole roses (or rosettes). Cutting big empty holes also made the small bodied instruments louder in a time before amplification. The vast majority of steel-string guitar soundholes are 4 inch in diameter (101mm). Most nylon-string (classical guitars) have 3 1/2in (89mm) soundholes. To determine your soundhole size just measure the distance across the center of your soundhole.
