Now, despite of this, people have their preferences for one over the other. Be it a round or and f hole, neither affect the playability of the guitar. It is seen that the round holed guitars are usually larger and heavier (jumbo) and thus have a deeper, louder and heavier sound than their sleeker, flatter, lighter are softer f-hole cousins. That is the only reason why one may favor one over the other. I own both kinds and I am comfortable with either.
So, if you wish to choose a guitar based upon the nature of its hole, its advisable to let your fingers and ears do the deciding than leaving that decision to your eyes - with respect to sound quality and ease of playing. And if you don't want to be a part of this debate, go get an electric.
