During the Flo and Eddie period there were some photos taken of Frank with an ES355.
Does anyone know what his thoughts were on using that model?

He said he stopped using them because when he played bigger concert halls they Feedback he tried foam but was still getting too much Feedback.

Though i think the last time he used ES355 was Rainbow theater 1971 when he was pushed of stage i think the guy who pushed him said FZ was looking at his Girlfriend and the sound was bad,maybe the Feedback?

I can't see how Tape is gonna be more effective than Form,When in the make of Semi Acoustic a solid piece of wood for pick ups to sit on and not vibrate and course Feedback tape would have a effect of no F-holes which is worse ask Charlie Christian :wink:
