Il Entertainer Magazine reviews Scratch Pad

Dec 1, 2004

Schaumburg-based Scratch Pad USA has actually come up with
a better way to protect the backside of a guitar from its
typical hazards; belt buckles, zippers, snaps, and
punk-rock guitar solos. Scratch Pad, for $26.95, is a
U.S.-made, velvet-like high quality finish protector that
adheres to your guitar (electric, acoustic, or bass)
without the use of adhesives or vinyl films.

Currently available in four colors (Velvet Black, Tyrol
Red, Royal Blue, Chestnut), the dimensions of Scratch Pad
have been designed to fit most guitar bodies including Les
Pauls, Strats, and acoustics. Indeed, the Scratch Pad fit
nicely on our 1985 Telecaster. Looks like these guys from
the northwest suburbs have come up with a winner. Visit to learn more. Scratch Pad is
available at JC's Guitars in Algonquin (847-658-9932) and
also at Flynn Music in Evanston (847-491-0500).
