Re: grips ???

Kung Fu Grip:
When you master the styles of Wing Chun, Monkey Style and Tiger Claw you may stop the guitar from rotating around your neck when doing a flying round house kick.

Monkay Grip:
For this one only mastering the Monkey Style is necessary, however you need to be focused very well and hence need advanced meditation lessons before successful use. When you master this you can use the monkey grip for various styles of stage self defense, including but not limited to the defense against "the roadie that paniks", "too long bass solo", "drum stick shot" and "wtf is it with the rythm guitarist" attacks. However the monkey grip should only be used in self defense, as the "POWAH MOJO OF JEM" will strike back against you when used offensively.

Re: grips ???

When you can't afford a case, you just carry it around by that.

Re: grips ???

the monkey grip is (was) a great idea.looks very cool and different from other guitars.very handy when your cup of tea is other side of the room or the tv control when playing guitar sitting down lol.

Re: grips ???

It also reduces the inherent bass response of the guitar to stop "boominess" when you're playing Madison Square Garden.

Or so I've heard

Re: grips ???

The monkey grip makes you play faster, just like the stickers on cars make them go faster!
