Would it be damaging to the wood at the sound hole to use a little Vaseline to help get the 'buster to fit more easily into the hole? Is there a better way? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks you.

Yeah, I wouldn't use that. Try some beeswax, surfboard wax, or paraffin wax instead. Rub it in the sound hole and around the FB and pop it in. You can also soak the FB in hot water to soften it a bit and help it flex as it goes in.

You might try dusting it with a little talcum powder.

I would be very careful using a too-tight feedback buster - you're putting stress on end grain, and I'd be worried about causing a split top. I think you'd do better to somehow reduce the diameter of the feedback buster.

I sometimes use the black rubber one. I had to cut a "pie wedge" out of it to get it to fit oone of my guitars.

Could you take some files to the feedback buster instead?

Warren, I did indeed use some files to take a bit off. Worked out fine.
