'scuse me while I kiss the sky.

being mindful of the effect rubber will have against nitrocellulose guitar finishes I'm wondering what opinions are about the Planet Waves feedback buster sound hole inserts.
Any opinions? Safe to leave in long term? PW's say they are safe but I'm unconvinced having seen the effect rubber can have on nitro finish

Why would you need to leave it in? I put one on when I pull the guitar out of the case at a gig and take it off when I put the guitar back in the case at the end.

FWIW, I've been doing that for years and have never seen a mark on two Gibson acoustics which are definitely nitro.

Same as Vic. Take it out when done. I have 2 Gibson J45's that seem to want to howl the low D notes in certain situations--especially in larger venues with a monitor turned up.

I keep one of those rubber feedback busters in the gigbag for that kind of thing and find it works exactly as advertised.

Then when I'm done I take off. I've not seen any evidence of chipping or peeling.

However I'm not really all the careful anyway. I took off the pickguard a long time ago because I thought the guitar sounded better without it. So if I scratch it I don't let it bother me. It's a tool for getting something done.

When I wear it out I'll buy another one.
