I found a solution for dealing with cheap guitar stands that eat
guitar finishes. I was given some stuff called “Presto Felt.”
This comes on a 9 x 12 sheet and is self sticking. It is very easy
to cut pieces and fit them to the surfaces that come into contact
with the guitar. The material is very stretchy so you do not have
to cut it inorder to get around curves. The adhesive bonds very
well. Hopefully the felt does not disintegrate guitars. I suspect
that it can be found at fabric or crafts stores. The manufacturer
is S.H. Kunin Felt Co, Worcester, MA 01615-0014.

I had a number of guitars on these stands. It appears that one
ones that had the most trouble are heavier instruments with
nitrocelulose finishes. I took a particular hit on a Les Paul and
a gorgeous custom shop ES335. I got these stands from Musicians
Friend. With “Friends” like these…

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
