    Hello! Does anybody know where I can buy one of these adhesive strips;

    I have a Gibson Les Paul Standard, so they'd need to be nitrocellulose safe(which I'm guessing they are, as Slash uses them)

    Any help is appreciated!

    thanks!

    Ah they would be perfect, but they're not nitrocellulose safe, sadly. Thanks though!

    I don't think Slash gives a damn that they are not nitrocellulose safe.

    Just roll up duct tape.

    Or, tape along the bottom edge of your pick guard.


    I've seen pick holder that attach to your strap.

    This is my favorite:

    Goes on the mic stand, no worries about nitro safety!

    But, I would wager Slash probably uses gaffers tape or something. Easily replaceable every gig. Your tech can stick some on right before you go on and take it off right after you're done playing... Less likelihood of guitar damage if short term application.

    I don't think Slash worries too much about the finish of his guitars unless they're vintage. From what I've seen, his LP's take a real beating. Plus I doubt he has to pay for any of them sans vintage.

    3M makes a indoor removable double sided tape. I would try a small piece in a inconspicuous spot to see if it reacts to your guitars finish. Plus, the "nitro" Gibson uses today is vastly different than nitro used back in the 50's.

    Good luck and have fun!
