    Well I must add I trust sweetwater to take care of me. I learned most of the others just want to sell
    regardless the Twisted neck I got the guy wanted me to have it warranty repaired instead of refund
    I felt I was lied to and misled so why would I send it back to be warranty repaired when 5-6 months go by
    and I have no guitar back and no way to get my money .

    If I suddenly developed a habit of playing guitar while wearing a WWE Heavyweight Championship belt I'm sure I'd pro-actively put a layer of Helicopter Tape on the back of my axe.

    I didn't even know there was such a thing as helicopter tape.

    Hell, I don't even wear buttons when I play my best guitars

    It comes in several sizes as well. I use the linked size on my bike projects to prevent cable rub and similar damage to the paint.

    Bad link
    Fixed https://www.amazon.com/F4-Tape-Self...dp/B002LA2258?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0
    I have some of that - great stuff.

    Oh this could just go so wrong.....

    Seriously, I just make sure my belt buckle is pushed to the left and pull my shirt out over it anyway. I dont weary any jewelry besides my wedding ring.

    I have a habit of checking what kind of scratchy things are in my pockets and the belt buckle thing before I lean in on an engine bay, and loose hanging things like hoodie hood strings that get pulled into a drill press or fan belt anyways.

    I just throw a plain tee over my Levi's and get the job done... I never tuck it in, so belt, rivets and the chain wallet holder I wear are always under the cloth...

    Or I use one of tjose shirts with soft buttons

    Would you settle for "incorrect relative to the intended item"?

    Dude that is just wrong.

    It should be the classic winged eagle belt or the attitude era belt.
