Holding a monkey grip?

Hey all. I was just wondering if anyone uses the monkey grip. Well, not just that. I was wondering what it would look like to see someone walking around holding their guitar by the handle that's been cut into it. So you JEM owners - let's see that monkey grip put to some use! Post pics below . . .

Re: Holding a monkey grip?

Am I the only person who doesn't mind sprouts and think that putting sprouts into a monkey grip is a bad thing?

Well I hate sprouts, but definitely would not foul up a monkey grip with produce.

Re: Holding a monkey grip?

Did anyone notice the trem is sitting way back on that cavity and not leveled?

I am blaming that on the sprouts messing up the spring tension .

Or lines of blow

Maybe a redesign of the trem bar into a straw for those who are into that sort of thing would be in order

Re: Holding a monkey grip?

We'll just call this "Mikeys Monkey Grip"



Seriously though I'm lost without it. I forgot how to carry a guitar without one and dang near dropped a strat the other night

I wonder why all guitars don't have them
