comment Does the size or shape of the resonance hole affect the tone?
Neil - you should be fairly safe with the sides - they don't vibrate too much - especially up closer to the neck.

Great idea - I'll start to do that on TGP. Lot of experts on there whose knowledge would be useful here.

comment Does the size or shape of the resonance hole affect the tone?
Haha - that is indeed a very tricky process Neil. Wouldn't recommend doing this to your expensive custom made guitar - although I DO know that John Williams has done this to his $25K Smallman classical guitar... :)

comment How do I set up an electric guitar?
I second Dan Erlewine's books. They gave me the confidence to tackle basic setup and fretwork on my guitars.

comment How can I practice in an apartment without annoying the neighbours?
iRig and Amplitube for iPhone/iPad is amazing. Allows me to practice anywhere at anytime. I can even sit under the stars on the deck late at night when the kids are asleep and jam along to backing tracks. Also, the ability to do multi track recording is great for coming up with ideas at anytime.

comment Proper maintenance for classic guitars?
Thats about all I do to maintain my classical guitars. Just wipe them down with a soft polishing cloth every time I play, and once a year or even once every two years just put a very tiny amount of lemon oil on the fretboard to prevent it drying out and keep it looking dark.
