Inconsistent Quality

When they work, they work well, but about half of the guards I've received were damaged in manufacture, and no one bothered to inspect them. The older issue of mixed gloss and satin guards seems to be resolved; however the supplier needs to get their act together and either freshen up the die cutting jig or get into another line of business.

On application - apply wet...simple and easy. Position on guitar, and yes a piece of blue low tack tape as a hinge. flip the guard off the surface, spritz the guard area of top with 8 ounces of distilled water to two drops of Dawn dishwashing detergent (reduces surface tension), then peel backing and position. Squeegee from center out from center of guard to edge, and wait 48 hours before pulling the top protective sheet.

Shot below shows bad die-cutting job with resultant adhesive holidays and scuffing on back of guard.
