Protective Covers for Guitars

Link: ScratchPadUSA

Not a gadget for the itchy rodent, the Scratch Pad is a protective cover for your guitar, made of a special polymer and overlaid with velvet available in different colours and designs.  It shields the guitar from your belt buckle.

The Scratch Pad requires no adhesive, but instead clings on to the surface of the guitar.  To remove it, just peel it off and it leaves no marks on the guitar.  It can then be re-applied to another guitar.

DGW Slave

Kerry Lutz who wrote to Dick and Leo in Episode 318, writes again to let us know that while he's a high-powered executive at work, he's a slave to DGW at home.  Not only does he find himself buying gadgets discussed on DGW, but now he's also downloading books from audible.com almost daily.  He wants a 12-step programme to rid himself of this addiction.  Dick has a brilliant solution.
