Lute holes are wooden carvings designed to fit into the sound-hole of a guitar, reducing feedback and protecting the edge of the sound hole from pick damage. Lute Holes were invented by Ulysses Busch and have been manufactured by The Lute Hole Company since 1997.[citation needed] They look similar to the decorative carvings - called rosettes - of early stringed instruments, such as lutes, ouds and vihuelas. Many notable guitarists have used Lute Holes in their guitar including: Randy Bachman from The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi, Jody Payne from The Willie Nelson Band, Jon Foreman from Switchfoot, J.J. Cale, and Ed Roland from Collective Soul.
