Lets hope you get as much out of your sound hole as those guys got out of that hole

That was one big Forstner bit. My first thought was that looks a lot like the peg heads on several of my yard sale rescue ukes that had been converted to little six string guitars.

How did they manage to bore three big holes without setting off the vibration sensors or anybody noticing? OK just tracked the story down, the security firm ignored the alarm while the thieves walked in and out of the building for two days. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/crime-courts/suspects-sought-brazen-london-jewelry-heist-n339831 As an aside, not seeing lots of rebar in that hole. Also a little suspicious of the quality control for their entrained air void system, fancy talk for saying that the mix looks a little dry in places.
