For generating interesting acoustic feedback tones here's a trick...
replace the mouthpiece of a wind instrument with a microphone
that points into the instrument. Point the instrument at a speaker
connected to the microphone and off you go.

I call this a 'resophone'.

It just hit me that this is also how a *talk box* works! ;-)

But instead of a wind instrument you are leading the air stream (of
guitar sound) into your mouth while vocalizing words and then
amplifying it through a mic and PA. This creates the illusion of the
guitar "talking".

you'd have to swallow the mic, ..turn up the gain

and then use the old puppeteers' trick of jigging the guitar up and down (completely different principle of operation to that used by Peter Frampton)
