    Default Pick-guard/finger-rest, on-off "Stay at home" gallery.

    I know there have been many threads of people wondering wether they should keep the pick-guard/finger-rest on or take it off. This is not that. It is just an invite to post a photo of your mandolin with it on and another with it off. I figure we all have some stay at home time so it might be fun to start up a photo gallery on this topic...

    I'll start off!

    Interesting, I put a pick guard on each of my mandolins before a week of ownership had past, and have never taken them off since then.

    (And I'm afraid I'm not about to take them off now.)

    Here's as close as I can get:

    That's more like hair on and hair off.

    Demetrius, what mandolin is that in the first photo?

    Not the same mando, but one off and one on.

    I have my pickguards all settled down nicely so I won't take them off for a picture. Guess I can't play this game either, Dem. Sorry
