In an age where misguided souls with lofty ambitions and access to power tools are a threat to any unsuspecting guitar ( I'm looking at you, Ted ), it's refreshing to see that the generation before us sometimes went to great lengths to keep their precious axes in pristine shape.
I personally fall somewhere in the middle of these schools of thought. Hard played miles are fine but keep the grinder away from your guitar.
I have a vague memory of a something similar to this Fender Jazzmaster Body Guard being marketed in the 1980s. Only then it was made of spandex.
