Scratch Pad Works Wonders!
by John from Greenville, OHI first found out about the scratch pad about 6 years ago, when I got my first good Electric guitar. I couldn't bear to let the back of that Epiphone Les Paul get scratched, scraped and dinged up. So ... read more [+]for months, I played it with my strap really short, and took all the ribbing from my friends at church, but protected the back of my Les Paul.

Enter the Scratch Pad. I discovered it one day while searching online, and knew I needed one for my Les Paul. When it arrived, it fit perfectly to the back of the guitar, and it has been there ever since! It has kept the back protected from the rivets on my jeans, the buttons on my shirts, and buckles on my belts.
A couple of years later when I purchased a Taylor 614ce, I knew I needed to get a scratch pad for it as well. It was the first accessory I purchased, and it has been there almost ever since as well. It has kept the back in perfect shape, and protected it from the same things that could have messed up my Les Paul.
One word of advice with this though. They recommend that if you use it with a Nitrocelulose finished guitar (such as a Gibson) that you let the finish cure for a year before you apply the Scratch Pad. I have read reviews of guys saying that it has caused minor discolorations to the back of their Gibsons (and other Nitro finished instruments), but I have not had this problem on my Epi or my Taylor because they use a different finishing technique.
All in all, I would definitely buy these again, and I probably will continue to buy more of them if I get more Epi's and Taylors. These are a great accessory, and have saved the back of my guitars, and will help them keep their value in the years to come! close [-]
