Scratch Pad Guitar Protector

Recommended Posts

Guest Farnsbarns

hi all i was wanting to know if there is anything to stop scratching the back of my les paul studio faded cherry

Starting 4 threads might help. [lol]

 

Only joking!

 

As per other advice, watch belt buckles, rivets in jeans, etc etc.

 

I never worry about it. My 5 year old R8 is starting to show wear and I quite like it.

For a faded cherry, Gaffa tape a feather pillow around your middle. Leslie West did this for years.

 

Post back when buying further guitars, for other finishes.

They do make flexible adhesive pick guard material, but you'd need to be careful that it was nitrocellulose safe. I'd suspect most of it wouldn't be, but maybe someone makes it?

Ok, be honest. Are you wearing a hubcap on your belt?

 

The worst are those rodeo belt buckles the size of a dinner plate. Of course those guys wear their guitars high enough to avoid the problem. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I once looked at a used ES-339 at Guitar Center in San Antonio, TX. It was listed in "excellent condition". The salesman told me it had been owned by some local country artist that I apparently was supposed to recognize, but didn't. Looking at the back of the guitar, he definitely DID NOT wear it high enough to avoid his belt buckle, which I can only guess was some sort of relief image of the Rocky Mountains based on the damage! Needless to say, I didn't buy it.
