Default Santa Cruz 1929-00 : Where to find a rubber circle feedback busters

I could finally buy a mint pre-loved Santa Cruz 1929-00 guitar and I found that both the handcraft, the tone and the shape as well as the wood selected is stunning.
The sound hole of the 1929-00 is 3-3/4”. I’ve tried the rubber circle feedback buster of my Froggy Bottom M in Koa but it still too large (around 10 cm). I do have the same issue with my Martin OM-21…the sound Hole is shorter than 10 cm...
I’ve been searching on the web but couldn’t locate any of this size…
So, I would be happy if owners of this model could help me to locate where I could find an appropriate one.
Thanks again for your help
Best regards
Christian

It seems that the rubber feedback buster type plugs mostly only come in 4" but I think I remember finding that Maton makes a couple sizes.

found this one:

Or spend a little more and get a really nice looking sound hole cover from lutehole.com. I have a couple of these for my Martin OM and Goodall guitars. They have any size you need.

I did a recent review of the Lutehole covers after purchasing one for my Santa Cruz 1929 00. They work well and are extremely good looking. I'm going to have on for sale here soon as I ordered a second one in a different wood type. PM me if interested.

Thanks Mike, but there is one thing that I don't understand, they're only covering part of the soundhole so that the acoustic tone can still be heard while providing a feedback protection ?

You might call SCGC and ask them - they might have an idea or two -

Thanks Tadol, Yes indeed, I've already sent a message to SCGC company to check with them...waiting for a reply...that just arrived while writing. They redirect me to the company Lutehole...So that means that this company is OK, what I understood when I read the different posts
Thanks again
