I want to use a guitar support that attaches with a suction cup on the lower bout along with a strap that hooks over the endpin. The problem is that this guitar has an unsealed, very thin, matte lacquer finish over Honduran mahogany. So basically the finish is far from airtight and the suction cup starts leaking loose within seconds and pops off after a minute or so.
I tried attaching the thin, self-adhesive square of clear plastic that is supplied with the support for just such an eventuality but within 10-15 minutes of attaching the suction cup, the suction actually starts pulling the self-adhesive film up from the wood in the very center. Yikes!
So I'm going to put something much more tenacious on there even if it turns out to be irreversible (the original self-adhesive film came off easily with a little Naptha encouragement). I'm thinking maybe the 0.011" gauge "golpeador" material would be stiff and stable. I also see in the LMII catalog some "transfer adhesive" that's supposed to be about the grippiest stuff going.
So what says the forum? Will self-adhesive golpe film be able to hold its own against the suction? Or can I use the self-adhesive film plus transfer adhesive together?
The only non-self-adhesive stuff I see in the catalog is non transparent pickguard material. I suppose if I put some of that on there with transfer adhesive it could resist anything. But it would be very unsightly on my lower bout and might not be flexible enough to handle the curve anyway.
